This Obituary Has 2 Condolences

  1. I am sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed Uncle Herb’s wonderful sense of humor and that ornery twinkle he always had in his eye! We had a lot of good laughs whenever he came to Illinois for a visit. I am remembering you all in my prayers!

  2. He was a special friend. He graced our lives for nearly 50 years. I will miss our email jokes, his wonderful smile and dry sense of humor. Do they play liars poker in Heaven? Blessings to all
