GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- Saint Michael The Archangel Catholic Church was packed Monday afternoon with family and friends, to celebrate the life of Hanover teen Henry Morin.

The Patrick Henry High senior was set to graduate the day before Father’s day. That day would have also been his 19th birthday.

Family and friends say the teen was known for his kindness and love towards everyone he came in contact with.

Last week police recovered Morin’s body after he disappeared Tuesday, June 4 while swimming in with a group of friends in one of the quarries in the area of Schuyler Road in Nelson County.

As always, our focus will be on the well-being of our entire school community, and we will provide every support possible to our students."
