Mourning Bill Henderson through an open letter from Terry Henderson
I would like to thank everybody for your outpouring of support and love during this very trying time. After 21 years of marriage, I have not only lost a very dear and devoted husband, but also my best friend, my constant companion, and lifetime partner.
I want to extend an invitation to all those who would like to share with us as we wish our final farewell to my loving husband, Bill Henderson, at his Celebration of Life on Thursday, July 14, and at his funeral, with full military honors, on Friday, July 15.
Although nobody can ever replace Bill’s contribution to the world of cancer patients, it is important that his legacy endures, and so it shall! I plan to continue with Bill’s work, as best I can, sharing with the world everything he taught me as we worked together side by side. With the help and support of many of our dear friends and colleagues (far too many to list here), I plan to continue with his newsletter and counseling and in the world-wide distribution of his book Cancer Free in order to spread his teachings in Beating Cancer Gently.
I also would like to make it clear that although Bill Henderson had been recently diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, he did not pass away from cancer. My dear husband passed away from other natural causes in Cancun, Mexico, at the age of 84 on July 4, 2016.
In addition to helping thousands of people in their fight against cancer, William McCoy Henderson also was a highly-decorated retired U.S. Air Force colonel.
As soon as I am able, I will post more details on Facebook, on our website www.beating-cancer-gently.com, and on his popular newsletter.
Again, I would like to thank everybody for your loving support and prayers.
