You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

Flowers are welcome.   brownliemaxwell.com

Please join us in celebrating Joe’s life over coffee and doughnuts on Saturday, June 12 from 1:00-6:00 at the Thornton Park Pavilion (behind the pool) in Bedford, Indiana. For more information, contact Laura Henley at 812-329-0039.

A lifelong Catholic, Joe had a deep faith, growing his spiritual life with prayer, retreats, and most of all, service. Wherever he was in the world, Joe was an active member of his parish, serving in whatever capacity he could: Lector or Eucharistic Minister, Parish Council, Pennies from Heaven, putting up tables after coffee and doughnuts, escorting elderly parishioners, or handing out foreign coins to younger parishioners after Mass.

Joe’s memory will be cherished by his children, Laura Henley of Bedford, Matt (Karen) Henley of Flemington, New Jersey, and Jane (Ben Kupronis) Henley of Atlanta, Georgia; grandchildren, Jack, Peter and Brendan Henley of New Jersey and Will, Paul and Kate Kupronis of Georgia; his oldest brother, Clarence “Biff” (Iris) Henley of Washington, D.C; foster son, Ben (Catherine) Hart, of Salisbury, Maryland; and extended family and dear friends.
