Dear Shelley, dear Betty, and dear sweet Jack,
Henry was amazing. I can’t imagine a more loving, supportive family that helped him flourish and grow into the strong, confident young man he was. I cherish the memory of teenage Henry making me a birthday cake. A thoughtful & insightful teenager. A testament of the love Henry was surrounded by. He had so much more to do. He will be greatly missed. We love you and we are here for you.

Michael Clutts says
Words can’t express how sorry I am to hear of your loss. I was blessed to get an opportunity to coach Henry and even though it was not a very long time, he left a lasting impact on me because of his always positive and kind attitude and passion for the game. My only regret was not being a better coach for him because he deserved so much more. He helped make me want to be better coach and person and for that I am so grateful. I will never forget him and wish you all peace and comfort during these times. May God bless you all.

Shelly and Betty,
I didnt know. I feel physically sick. Henry was a spunky second grader in class who was well liked by everyone. Smiling, joking, and always kind. You two were great examples of parents who would do anything to help your boys. I am so sad for all of our lossz
