Herb was a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor. I enjoyed sharing a small part of my life with him. I will cherish and carry those memories with me through the rest of my life. I have a Teddy Bear of his that I have kept through the years in hopes that one day I could give it back to him. We could laugh about how he pulled its head off and I sewed it back on before Aunt Donna could found out. It was our private joke. The last time I saw him he did ask about that silly little bear and wondered if I still had it. I told him the next time he visits my mother Aunt Saundra to let me know so I could give it to him. That day never came and I never heard from him again. There were so few memories between us kids that every memory is special to me. I have so few good memories of growing up but a few stick in my head like going to ShakeyâÄôs Pizza where the player piano played, Herbie and I smoking on the Beach and almost getting caught by Lori, so we made up this story that some guy was after us. Going to get meatball subs, playing in the snow and Herbie throwing a snowball threw a car window, and most of all stopping by after school at the local bakery to eat the ends of the strudel. Memories are all we have, and they help us cope with the sadness we feel when we lose a loved one, those happy times will live in out hearts forever. God is with Herbie now and his pain is over. I am sure he is up there making everyone smile like he did here on earth.

Herbie was such a free spirit with an infectious personality that could make anyone laugh; not to mention a brilliant artist. It is unbelievable to think he is gone and when I think of him I can’t help but laugh out loud remembering our many adventures through the carribean and those carefree summers in Colonial Beach.

RIP Herbie. I hope you are in a much better place free of your burdens with those we have loved and lost.

I did not know Herb very well, just for a few weeks! He was our new neighbor in Twin Ponds. We talked over our fence about how “HAPPY” he was to be in his new home!He spoke often of his niece CHRISTINA & how much they we buddies!! He loved it when I gave him tomatoes out of our garden & called me sweetheart….This is just a reminder of how percious life is.We would just like to say we are so sorry for your lost.

I did not see Herb very often, but when I did we talked a great deal and shared a lot of laughs together. I remember, in particular, him being so confident and optimistic in his line of work and so proud and reverent when speaking of his family. I will miss Herb tremendously and will never forget the enjoyable times we spent together. He was such a unique person — there is no one who can replace him.
