  13. My sincere condolences to the Henry family.
    I ran into Stainless at a mutual friend’s house in the summer and he made a point of coming over to give me a hug and give his condolences for my sister’s passing earlier in the year. He spoke very fondly of her and was deeply saddened. He was a very kind and thoughtful person .
    RIP my friend

  14. Wilma and family
    So sorry and shocked to hear of my buddy’s sudden passing. We send our heartfelt condolences to everyone. Stainless and myself talked for hours on the phone and he was quick to point out i can “talk” for long periods but it was always interesting conversations and much needed. He would call me if there was news and vise versa..He sure was proud of his new Harley and he planned on riding it as much as he could so ride on brother as you will be missed. RIP Stainless

    We were shocked and saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. Jim was always so quiet, but my last two visits with the family I think I talked to Jim more than I (we) had his whole life. Love to all May he Rest In Peace!
