    The only comfort I have is knowing that Conor was there to welcome you home. What a beautiful reunion that must have been. So many people will miss you so much and you were so loved by those who knew you. ?

    A favorite memory is all of us together at the hospital, overnight, waiting for Avery to make her grand entrance! You “fixing” Jessie’s pillow(you hadn’t developed that “bedside manner just yet), us all giggling in the dark as mom rattled her bottles of Tylenol and melatonin in her purse.. y’all laughing at the snoring lady sleeping on the cold, hard floor
    Your prescience is greatly missed! We will always love you!

  10. Hunter Henderson

    I know so many people will think they will never see you again but I know I will love you Dad ?

  11. I am so sad to hear you have left us. You will truly be missed. You could always make me laugh, starting from the first time I met you in the 6th grade to you and Luke telling me about trying to Teepee my house and our dog trapping y’all in a tree. Rest In Peace my Friend.
