Joseph Henley ( September 1, 1976 - May 29, 1996 ) Tribute from the Hensley family - From the 1997 Jefferson Football Program ~ A town was touched when you went away; Hearts poured open, tears dripped for days. Not an hour passes by when you are not on our minds, We will miss you, we will love you . . . for all time. Today, Inspiration is the word to describe you, As you sit by the Lord, watching the Red & Blue!
