    When I told Max last night that Grandpa Henry couldn't hold on any longer and that he passed away, 11 year old Max said, "He couldn't hold on to the grass; he went up to the stars." We love you, Eleanor . . . thank you for taking such good care of our father/grandfather; what a blessing is the love you two shared. With hugs and kisses . . . All our hearts, Douglas, Wendy, Tyler, and Max Needham

    Eleanor:

    I guess that it is somehow appropriate that we just learned of this on Memorial Day. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
