To Karen and your family,
I will also miss Herb, he was a true inspiration in my life, a good man, a family person, and a great person that gave others joy for so many years. He took care of his family and other s with out asking for anything in return. I have been blessed to know your father and considered him to be my friend and family. Like he said one day to my mom, I was his buddy!My heart breaks for your loss. I will be here for you and your family.
