Herman was a wonderful, caring man who introduced me to the Lions Club. I will always have fond memories of Herman and the Lions Club. I am a better person for knowing Herman. Rest in the eternal peace of our Lord.

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Words can not express the depth of my feelings that go out to you at this time. Herman was a great man. I enjoyed every time that you two came to the SSJ Aux. functions–just to spend some time with you both was the best time.

I’m sure his passing will leave a great void in your life, but the heavens must be rejoicing today to have him up there.

If there is ever anything that you need, please do not hesitate to call. I consider it a gift to be called your friend. Love you always!

The memories of Uncle Herman will always be ones of a man who stood tall, walked softly, always held out a helping hand, told great jokes and didn’t mind a little song or dance too! You will be missed. May God keep you in the palm of his hand and till we meet again…
