Our hearts and thoughts are with the family in your time of grief. I'll always remember the good times that we had as kids growing up.

To The Family of Jackie Hensley - I was deeply saddened and shocked to see Jackie's obit when I logged on to the Logan Banner website. I went to school with Jackie - Verdunville Grade through 1977 Logan High Graduation. I moved from Verdunville in 1979 to take a job in Washington, D.C. and haven't had an opportunity to keep in touch with old friends. Jackie was truly one of the nicest guys in school - he was always kind and respectful to everyone. I hope that you may find some comfort in knowing so many people will remember Jackie with highest regard. May you find peace as you grieve Jackie's untimely passing.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Jackie. He was a very sweet and kind person at Logan High School class of '77. We will all miss him deeply. God's blessings and comfort to his family.
