  2. Henson Family

    We are so sorry for each of you. Our prayers and thought are with you. Larry said I was his best friend and Cathey was his Special Cousin. We felt the same.. We had so many laughs, smiles and great times . Larry loved his golf and when he wasn’t able to go he always asked where we were golfing when we told him, a huge smile would come across his face. You and Cathey do it all.. We always told him every time we played we wished he was with us. We will miss him everyday.. We called each other often and if one missed the other called.. He Loved his Family he had his own way which made him special!!
