Kindness and a true giving heart, are wonderful traits to aspire toward, and such a blessed legacy for Mrs. Henderson's family to have as a special remembrance. I never had the chance to meet Mrs. Henderson in person, but in some ways I feel fortunate to have a glimpse of her kind heart through having known her daughter Tammy as a close, dear friend for so many years. My heartfelt condolences to you Tammy, and your family. Love and Hugs, Maureen
