TJ Hensley Memorial Fund

It is with deep sadness that we let you know TJ Hensley passed away unexpectedly on Friday, May 23, 2014.  TJ was only 23 years old.  He was a great kid, always looking to do the right things for his family.

Many of you know TJ’s history of losing his mother a few years ago, Paula (Gillis) Hensley, and then, a short time later, his father, Thomas Hensley, passed as well.  TJ leaves behind two younger brothers, Dylan and Seth, as well as his young son, Greyson.  (See obituary here: Smith Funeral Home Obituary)

Because there is no insurance for TJ, we've set up this memorial fund to raise money to cover the cost of the funeral services, as well as help his brothers with the care and support of TJ’s son. All proceeds will go directly to them.

These kids have had it tough.  Let’s pay it forward and come together to help them during this very difficult time. I know how much they will appreciate it. Any and all amounts are welcome.

With heartfelt thanks,

Joyce Fantasia-Murphy
on behalf of the Gillis/Hensley families respectively
