Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Was so saddened and surprised to hear of Henry's death so soon after Helen's. Henry was a co-worker and friend of my first husband Merv Booty and my brother Gary Moerman, both deceased. Henry was a wonderful man, a very hardworking and dependable employee and a good friend to my husband and brother when working for Westfair Foods. He was well respected by all who knew and worked with him. Merv was his boss and Henry mentored my brother Gary when Gary was first employed with Westfair Foods. Both of these men not only worked with Henry but because of his personality and gentle but strong nature they also became his friend. We all knew Henry as a caring person of strong faith and we all enjoyed time spent together at their lake house, sharing in his bounty of vegetables from his garden there. Now your parents, my brother and my first husband are in heaven together and we know we will see them again one day. Sending my condolences to the family and praying God will give you strength to go through the difficult days ahead. Henry and Helen will be greatly missed by all who knew them. - Posted by: Dina (Booty) Reid (friend) on: Apr 16, 2022
Jennifer and families I am doubly saddened to now hear of your father's passing and of your mom's passing just a short time ago. I often drive down Coburg Avenue and look at your old home and remember your parents so fondly. Once again you are all in my thoughts and prayers. - Posted by: Sherryl Peters (School friend of Jennifer) on: Apr 16, 2022
