Jeremiah's Going Home

Jeremiah Henderson was born in Birmingham Alabama to Corbett and Ozella Henderson.  He was the youngest and last surviving sibling of CJ, Geraldine, Herbert, and Odessa.  Jeremiah was known as Geri and graduated high school at the age of 16 and studied at Fisk University.  He served in the Army on the Honor Guard and became an entrepreneur working as master of ceremony for fashion shows, as a makeup artist, beautician and even had his own coffee shop back in the late 80's.  Some referred to him as the mayor of Georgia Avenue and he was beloved by everyone who knew him.  We want to honor him with a proper send off and appreciate any contributions you can make to help off-set the cost of his arrangements.  Thanks in advance for your help.
