7 Condolences for “John Hensley”

  1. Paul & Sharon Kirby

    It was with great sadness we herd of the passing of Herb. We loved him and have missed seeing him at Central Indiana Campgrounds for our annual Campmeeting for the past few years. We will always rememeber his great spirit and sweet-sweet smile.

  2. Walt and Loretta Minnick

    To Dwight: Sorry to hear about Herb. Will be keeping you in prayer as we will be unable to attend the serices as we both have to work that morning. I know it’s hard to be the last of your family but have I have loved your family all my life. Remember you and Juanita taking me to learn piano lessons and I still play on the same piano at church. We had the piano turned the other day and the guy said that that piano was made to last only 70 years. It’s time is about up too. But he fixed it and it still sounds good. I will miss seeing all the people I know who will be at Herb’s funeral. Love you, Loretta Zollman Minnick.

    I so loved uncle Herbie. One of my earliest childhood friends. Battleship partner and letting me steer his car going uptown for Grandma. So many great memories…not to mention all the hair combings. I wish I could be there. Rest in peace…Will see you in Heaven.

    It’s with much sadness that I heard of John’s passing, but it’s refreshing to know heaven a sweeter today. John was my grandpa’s roommate at the Clinton House a few years ago and after my grandpa died I would stop him from time to time to check on John. I will miss him.

    When I think of Herb, I think of faithful. Whenever the church doors were open he was there. He loved God and he enjoyed being with people. Isn’t that the “Greatest Command”?

He was a very sweet man, I enjoyed having him come help me with the meals at the Paul Phillippe Resource Center when I worked there:) I enjoyed the time we spent and the birthday parties I had for him. He will be missed greatly. Sincerely Anna and Jason Disinger
