Mom and the library: Memories of Mrs. Henry
That "look," telegraphed from the choirloft to the second pew by Mrs. Henry, was all it took to maintain proper decorum among the little Henry's in church, when Rev. V.P. Henry was in the pulpit
Ed, I just read your old story of your adventure as a projectionist..
You mentioned my mother and her "look". How well the little Henry's knew that look. Probably not my older sister, but I am sure that Ed and Vic were also acquainted with it and I surely remember it.
She controlled us at Church by sliding that "look" from the choir around Dad in the pulpit. It surely did quiet us down. Not another rustle could be heard from the second pew after that.
Fond memories, now. Guilty feelings, then.
s/Martha Henry Berry
Thanks for bringing back memories of one of the great saints of the Columbia United Methodist Church - and a wonderful librarian.. -EW
