Richard Hero (Margaret), Karleen Maloney, John Hero (Keala) and Kathy Chamberlain (Ron), and his sister, Priscilla Hook (Howard):

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, moments like this are trying times, the sudden absence of someone you've loved and cared, for most of your lives, creates a deep void which time can only partially heal.

I remember Carl J hero when families from Wichita visited him with his family a number of times in Texas, we had great fun celebrating family reunions. He was a straight shooter, and when conversing about meal
preparations, in his Kitchen his wife Beverly was "King".

My prayers are with you all, We are comforted only that at some future time we will participate in the family reunions that are yet happening in Heaven, with each passing of the newest family member.
