Henry's nickname was Bucky. Bucky was like a big brother to me. He would take me to church and taught me to swim when I was six years old at Rockaway Beach where he was a life guard. Bucky was everyone's favorite. I remember Mom getting a call from Anna, who was Bucky's mom, to say that he had died, I remember that my mother was in hysterics most of the day after hearing the news. It didn't have that kind of impact on me because I was too young at the time. Now, I am 70 yrs old and Bucky is still always in my prayers. I still think of Bucky as my big brother. He was such a wonderful person, and it was a real tragedy to lose him.
