I went with two other old friends to Kingman, Az to pay our respects at the Memorial service for my old academy classmate/partner Tom Henson. I got to see Tom's daughters, met Josh his son and grandchildren. I even had the good pleasure of seeing some other Deputies who knew and worked with friend Tom. It was a very nice memorial to a good man, hard working law enforcement officer and friend. My sympathies to all who lost this good man. "He made the world a better place" RIP Thomas Wesley Henson RIP
