    A dear friend e-mailed me this morning with the terrible news. I had visited New Haven frequently over the years and I regret that I had only visited with Henry a few times.

    I miss my days back in the 60s when we (Henry, the doctor and I) would dine out on a regular basis.

    God Bless!

    My dear friend Henry,

    Will always remember all the conversations we had and especially the ones we had when I came in for Hillhouse class reunions. Working for your mom in 1949-55, was also a great time. Your mom made the best apple pie. May you be with them, Rest in peace. God bless you.
