  1. It is with sincerest sympathies that I extend my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time to all of the Hennesey family. May you find comfort in the Lord, each other, the friends and families that love you, and each and every moment you were blessed with Charle’s presence . Sincerely, David MacRoberts

  2. As trite as it sounds, my thoughts are with you. I wish I could have been there in person to extend condolences.

  3. Jason and Erica-I want you to know that my heart hurts for you during your time of loss. My deepest sympathy to you, as well as to Dee, Shannon and Brian, and the extended family. Eventhough I didn’t have the opportunity to meet and know Charles, I already knew he was a good man and had the love of the Lord in him, for he opened his home and heart to you with total acceptance and love. My God bless you, and open his arms to accept your dad into his eternal home. All my love- Jayda

  4. Dee, Shannon and Jason, Boyce and I were sad to hear of Calvin’s passing, but we know his spirituality and faith prepared him for his new home with the Lord. Memories of family life with all of you are special for Boyce. Calvin once told me under his breath, “Bonnye, the best cure for a short temper is a long prayer”. It made me laugh, and I have thought of him often, knowing he was right. Take care of each other as a great family and God Bless.

  5. Dee,I’m so sorry! Calvin meant so much to us. He was a big part of our childhood. We will always remember the fun times playing sports,army and just hanging out listening to daddy tell stories.

  6. Dee We heard about Calvin in the Advocate on Sat. Our deepest condolences. Please let us hear from you at some point. We love you all and think of you all often. Wanda and Tom Lee

  7. Dee, I am so sorry for your loss. Since being back in the states,I have tried to find you all and now I find we lived very near each other. I would like to talk with you if possible. I have used Calvin and my relationship in many sermon illustrations. He will be missed.
