My heart was truly saddened when I heard of the passing of my friend Henry Canales. Henry and I were stationed together at Mather AFB CA. We spent hours talking in a small truck while keeping watch on the WSA. I consider myself lucky to have known him. God bless your family still with us and god bless you Henry.
