Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm so sad to hear of Henry's passing, even though it came to me late. I miss watching Sunday football with him and drinking frozen lemonade. And fetching a "Fresco" for Uncle Hughie! God bless.

Mr. Maher hired me for my first job with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of LA. He was a wonderful boss...maybe the best. My sincere sympathy to his family
