  • So so sorry. Herb was such a nice man. You three did so much for my mother. Will always remember your kindness and help. Will keep you in my prayers.

  • Dear Debbie and family, I have fond memories of your dad, and the many times he cleared our sidewalk of snow with his snow blower at 600 E. High St. early in the morning even before I got outside. He is loved and missed by so many. May the Lord comfort and bless each of you at this time of loss. He has left a beautiful heritage.
