    So many memories with this family! When our family moved to West Wabash, there were FORTY-SIX kids on the block. The Hendersons made up ELEVEN of them! We played, fought and then played some more! Dirt clog fights behind my house, Moll Ball in “DX FIELD”! I miss my “true” friends! “No one ever forgets their childhood friends”!

    Leah, I am so sorry I won’t be able to get to the funeral home. I am thinking of you and praying for all of you. I would be there if I could. God comfort you knowing Dick is in Heaven. He and Melvin are probably up there seeing what they can get in to. I know Dick is having a great welcome home party with your parents and mine. Much love, Carolyn Sue
