Both Alice and Henry were such good friends and dear people. They reached out to us when we were new to Southfork, beginning a friendship that only Mainers and New Brunswickers would understand. No need for board games or a TV on in the background, we could trade stories for hours on end. Moderate exaggeration was , of course, expected, welcomed and reciprocated with straight faces all around. Having moved to the west coast now we miss that all the more. Stern humour is such a wonderful thing and they both had it in good measure. It takes years, no, decades to perfect it. To say we miss them both is such an understatement. We count ourselves lucky to have known them and will remember them to each other often. It's the little things that always reminded us of them and made us talk about them. We don't suppose that will change.
We will never forget Henry's look of delight when he met a friend. A conversation with him (and dear Alice) was such pleasure. Henry was just the kind of person to be an example to us all. We know what a hard worker and person of principle and wonderful example of a fine gentleman he was. Those of us who gathered on their porch in Florida got to know and value these beautiful people. The world is surely a poorer place without them
Condolence: Henry was such a dear, dear friend to us both. We were privileged to know such a fine man. Fun and laughter was shared for far too few years, but great memories remain. We will continue to miss you true friend.
