We are all deeply saddened by the passing of our Uncle Herbie. It's unfortunate that it takes a moment like this to make us realize the passage of time and how we take each other for granted until they are no longer there. We will always remember our Uncle with fondness for the gentle and wise man that he was, as well as the family get together's we shared when we were growing up. To Karen and family, please accept our heartfelt sympathy's for your irreplaceable loss. Love Janice, David, Jordan, Dustin, and Carly

Dear Aunt Karen and your entire family, We are so deeply saddened and shocked by the sudden loss of Uncle Herbie. His kind, caring and philosophical conversations, will stay embedded in our hearts. We where so fortunate, in our younger year's, to have spent time together with our families camping. The most endearing quality that your husband/father/grandfather/Uncle and once brother to Wally and Frank had, was his ability to give his undivided attention to what was going on in your life at that moment. Although, Uncle Herbie’s Canadian relatives where far, he reached out to make sure he kept connected in someway. He would ask about every family member one by one until he was caught up on everyone's life. Family was everything to Herbie. Aunt Karen and all of the family, our thoughts are with you. Your husband/father/ grandfather will be ever so missed. Sending love to all. Joy, John, Zach, Adam, Danielle, Melisss and Shelby.
