Herman will be dearly missed.  Always loved his sense of humor and vistiting with him and Leatha.  Hard to believe that both of them are gone.  Really enjoyed them as neighbors and relatives.  Miss them both!

I will miss Uncle Herman.  As a little girl, I didn't always get his sense of humor but as I grew up, I learned to appreciate, enjoy it and join in.  I will miss his wonderful smile.  Love to all the family. Kaye Lyn

So sorry Karen about your dad. We won't be able to make it to the funeral because Vernon has a bad cough and he's not feeling good. Y'all are in our prayers.
