Some of my best times when I was younger was when I got to go visit Uncle Herb. So much fun to be around. Wonderful uncle and truly a Godly man.

So sorry for the loss of a great friend. We have special memories of spending time with the family and attending Hamersville Church when my dad was pastor. We will be praying for comfort for the family and sending lots of love. Love, Miriam, Madena, and Vicki Leonard
