    My deepest sympathy to all of you on the passing of a wonderful, compassionate man. Dr. Henry was our dentist for many years. He treated my late parents, my siblings and me with such great kindness. When my husband was in school, he was also treated by Dr. Henry.
    His heart was full of love for others and he made an impact on so many. We were fortunate to have known him.

    My husband and I had been patients of Dr. Henry for over 20 years. Dr. Henry was a kind hearted individual who always thought of others first. We had confidence in his skills and never dreaded a trip to the dentist. If an emergency dental situation arose he always managed to get us into the office. We feel very fortunate to have known such a caring and sensitive person. He will be missed. Our condolences to the family.
