Herolds' Hangout

Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


Remembering Henry

I would never have called him that in person, for fear of getting severely (and deservedly) punished. He was one of my grandpas and I rarely talked to him these past few years. It was mostly during a holiday at my parents’ house. I did call him a few times on my cell phone.

Tonight, I finally looked at some photos that my dad gave me that was passed out the weekend of grandpa’s funeral, from a few weeks ago.

The photos can be seen here, unedited and full of stories that I wish I had taken the chance to find out more about. He served as a medic in the 82nd Airborne in the U.S. Army and jumped out of airplanes! My grandpa was a member of the “greatest generation”.

The Herald Tribune and Farley Funeral Home both have his obiturary online.
