Our family will sadly miss our neighbor Mrs. Henry, as we call her. We are very new to the neighborhood, but she was an angel of caring, bringing food to our family for weeks when we were laid off shortly after moving in. We will miss her stopping by to chat, waving when we got the mail at the same time, being our angel. Prayers and condolences to your family. Sincerely, Forrest, Kirsten, Amos, Jeremiah, and Jael West
