Henry Morin’s body was found this past Thursday, after he went missing while swimming in a quarry in Nelson County.

“This is just a parent’s worst nightmare, a mother’s worst nightmare," his mother, Kate, said.

“All the moms that have reached out to me, with really no words but just to say ‘I love you and I’m here for you.’ Sometimes there are no words. I just want to say thank you with a full heart,” she said.

A memorial service for Morin will be held Monday at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Glen Allen.
