“Deus tantum me iudicabit”

It was Wednesday January 31, 1979 when Henry and Beverly were blessed with a blue-eyed bouncing baby boy. This baby's name was Henry and he grew into somewhat of a normal young man.

Henry was taught good Christian values as a child and these values helped shaped how he went about his daily life.

"Every man dies, not every man really lives." ~William Ross Wallace

Henry's life was influenced by vampires, samurai, assassins and mercenaries. The thought of the undead and killers for hire was an intriguing concept which helped shape his life. Henry became a man who was able to make decisions without being hampered by emotions.

Henry has been different things to different people: a friend, a listening ear, a warm smile, a broad back, a clear mind, comfort, kleenex (his favorite), pretty eyes. OK, only sure about the pretty eyes. ;-) He tried to make a difference in the life of others, a positive difference, and hoped he did. Only time will tell. Wait, only persons whose lives have been affected will tell.

Ultimately, the type of person that Henry was will never be known. He was the perfect iceberg. There was so much that was beneath the surface that at times even he didn't know what he was. His live was one of torment and conflict but he still managed to focus on duty. Duty over self. Choice over circumstance.

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will."

  1. Whatever Henry 'thought' he was, that perfect iceberg, I'm sure I would have enjoyed him just as much as I enjoy the 'new' Henry. The world doesn't appreciate different but I do

    This is real deep. But even though you seem to give so much it is actually little as it is rather obvious that a lot is not being said. The surface is so thick it is hard to see what is actually there. Interesting. Pretty mysterious uh? well isn't that something. i like that.
