So sorry to learn that my friend and fellow co-worker at Eastman passed away. I have wonderful memories of Henrietta and Larry. I spend lots of time with them when my
husband was in the military. I wish we could have spent more time together especially in her later years. I am devasted that she had the terrible disease that stole her memory . She was a delightful person and I know her children will miss her terribly. My deepest sympathy to all her family. She is now at peace..
