Peter Fisher of the Friends shares with us this story of a long friendship with Henry:
Henry is a true environmentalist and has advocated for causes that promise long-lasting, far reaching and forward thinking results. He is a charter member of the Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve. As he approaches 98, he is no less passionate for life than he ever was, but understandably has slightly lowered expectations for physical vigor. Lifelong outdoors people, Henry and Virginia backpacked their way through the Rockies, Andes and the Himalaya. Today, Henry keeps fit with daily visits to the gym.
If you are unable to attend his upcoming birthday party, please take time to seek him out at the annual meeting of the Friends in April. You'll find a truly unique and genuine person who will add much to your life, as he has to mine. "
