" We are shocked to read of your sweet husband's passing and want to extend to you and your family our condolences. We have great memories of meeting you at the MTC prior to your departure to Nauvoo and then seeing you again in Nauvoo as we were heading home from our mission to Kirtland. You were outstanding, loving, and truly spiritual giants. May peace be with you in the days to come. "

" Dear Lula and family, We were saddened to hear about the passing of your husband and father. We remember LaMont as a quiet man of strength, wisdom, generosity & kindness. He always wore a smile of encouragement. He was a tremendous example of dedication to family and to the gospel. He has left a wonderful legacy to be remembered by. Our prayers for comfort and peace to be with each of you in the coming days ahead. Love, Tony & Mary "

Joan and I just arrived in Salt Lake to enter the MTC and I read of the passing of Elder Henriksen. I am sad at his passing. I really enjoyed working with you guys in the Long Beach Mission. I hope we can be as good of missionaries as you were. - Jeffrey McDonald

Dear Aunt Lula and Family, We were so sad to learn of the passing of Uncle LaMont. You both have always been such a tremendous example to all of us of dedication to the Lord. Certainly Uncle LaMont will always be remembered for the way he consecrated his life to the church. What an amazing legacy! We love you and will certainly keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

You are certainly in our thoughts and prayers. It sure is great knowing that life is eternal and I'm sure Uncle Mont will be very busy using his many talents serving on the other side. - Steve and Carla Christensen

I served with Elder and Sister Henriksen in Nauvoo/Carthage. I'm so sorry to hear of his departure. I have great memories and pictures of him and Lula. I feel lucky to have got to know him. Take care and you are in my prayers. - Kristi Crockett Snow

Elder and Sister Henriksen served with us in the California Long Beach Misison when we first arrived. President Evans described perfectly what a kind, wise, and gentle missionary Elder Henriksen was. I noticed how careful he was to never criticize or complain. He was Christlike in his dealings with the missionaries and with the public. He and Sister Henriksen are a perfect pair. Everything good and noble that could be said of him could be said of her as well. The Henriksen family will be in our prayers during the days and weeks ahead. - President and Sister Sexton (Long Beach, CA)

We rejoice in the life of LaMont, his goodness, life-long service to family and church, his scholarship and example of Christ-like living. We loved serving with him in the Long Beach Mission. He was patient with the missionaries and their errors of driving. He taught them how to better take care of their vehicles in a kind and gentle way and the missionaries loved him. He always bore his testimony to them and it was powerful. He taught us how to serve and how to live a Christ-like life. May we remember his example and work to become more like he is. - President and Sister Ron Evans

I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Mont! He was such a great man! You two did so many good things together! You always were so good to us, and so good to call Mom often. We love you all! - Gayle and Les Andrews (Mesquite, TX)

I'm so sorry. Elder Henriksen was a pleasure to know. I always kind of wanted to pick his brain at the vast amount of church and gospel knowledge he had. My thoughts to you, Sister Henriksen, and your family. It's always so hard on those who are left behind, but makes us so thankful for what we know. Love to you all, Roeann Harper (Mesa, AZ)

" Dear Lu, Bruce, Russell, Dana, Doug, Holly, Heidi, Lauriann and families: I have never known a man like LaMont. His quiet faith, strength, leadership and integrity have been such an example to me. I think often of him and of the things he has taught me. I think you will not know in this life the depth and breadth of his influence. I am sorry for the loss of his daily presence in your lives. Love, Karyn "

" I am the daughter-in-law of Harvey and Mary Louise Pence from rural Eldora, Iowa. I have heard many stories about Elder Henrikson over the years. I know that the Pence family and many others will be truly indebted to Elder Henriksen for his faithful service as he helped pioneer the Marshalltown ward, in Marshalltown Iowa with Elder Eldean Holiday. We know that he was a mighty servant and appreciate knowing him and of his great life. "
