Henry Mills, Grandfather

Mike was born in the naval hospital in Charleston, South Carolina where his father was stationed in 1956. After Mike's birth, Henry Mills traveled to Charleston to check on his new grandson and to make sure that Paul and Shirley knew what they were doing. Pictured above is Henry leaving the young family's apartment after his visit; he's heading out to catch a bus back to Itawamba County. There aren't too many photos of Mike's grandpa Henry so this one is treasured. Henry died in 1963 of a heart attack and was buried at Sandy Springs Cemetery.
