The Rush side of the family just heard the news. I'm so sorry, Sandy. I have fond memories of the Passovers you both hosted, and was so appreciative of your generosity to bring us all together. I hope your memories of Henry help you find comfort. We're thinking about you.

Much love,

It is with a heavy heart that Joanne and I send our condolences to Sandra who is as special to us as you are to Henry. The photo captures everything that Henry stood for . . . energetic, happy, welcoming and confident. We will miss those wonderful dinners and brunches with him at our side, but he will always be right there with us.

With love,

Joe and Joanne Armenio

To All the Kite Family,

I wish to express my deepest sympathies on the loss of Henry. Henry and I were kids together (80 years ago) in what we now call the old neighborhood and I believe grade school. The last I saw Henry was when we were both living in Glenview and that had to be 45 years ago. Memories are memories and good memories are the best tho.

Again my most sincere deepest sympathies.

I want to express my sadness for your loss. I saw the notice in today's paper. My father, Jim Geimer, was a good friend of Mr. Kite. I believe they worked together at Peat Marwick way back when. There was a great group of men from that experience that continued to gather and support each other through the years. I know my dad thought the world of Henry.
