A simple child,
That lightly draws its breath,
And feels its life in every limb,
What should it know of death?
William Wordsworth

In Memory Of
Dale Howard Henderson
June 1, 1970 - September 6, 2006

In light of his big heart and love for children, Dale's family selected the International Children's Heart Foundation for donations in lieu of flowers.  We would like to extend our sympathy to Dale's family and friends during this difficult time.  Thanks to all who have donated in Dale's memory.  For more information about Dale, please go to his memorial website at

From the Heart

On October 31, Sam Elkins turned 10 years old.  Instead of birthday presents, he asked his family and friends to make donations to the International Children's Heart Foundation.
Sam knows how fortunate he is to be living in the USA where we have some of the best healthcare in the world.  You see, Sam was born with a heart defect called pulmonary atresia.  He was able to get a lifesaving operation right away.  Thanks to Sam's generous heart, his family and friends donated over $500 to help needy children with congenital heart defects.
