Memorial story

Henry Winkler

by his wife

I am writing in the loving memory of my husband of 43 years. He died December 28,2006 from his heart finally failing. He was diagnosed 3 years ago with PH, and up until last year,he maintained a fairly normal life. The shortness of breath and the edema really made him unconfortable the last two weeks of his life.He was always so active and in excellent physical shape, that the decline of his body made him quite depressed. My husband was my hero and he was a great man. He will be missed by so many people who cared so much for him. My prayers go out to all who have such a devastating disease.
