  • Henryville holds memories for former resident

    I have mentioned in many of my past columns, with very fond memories, of the years we lived in Henryville, Ind.

    Words cannot describe what my whole family feels about the devastation they have gone through, and yet they have picked themselves up and are going forward as best they can. Even though we moved many times when our children were growing up (due to job transfers), our children consider it their hometown.
