Herb was like a sheriff in our neighborhood. He was a mediator in a dispute between us and another neighbor that decided they would be our"arch" enemies and accuse of various ridiculous transgressions from our dog to having a ladder and wheelbarrow within their view. Something was always bothering them! Herb was such a "comforter" to us and our family to assist all our hassles with them. He also came over for our little plays around Christmas time, and became one of the "wise" men as he truly always was .- Doris accompanying us on the piano to complete the play and even bringing their own replicas of "gold, frankincense and myrrh" they always added finesse to every event we had!
Herb and Doris were always the "hostesses with the mostesses" giving us a beautiful dinner several times when we first moved as their neighbors and later moved to another house, they even brought over our first meal. God must have a special high place for both of them in Heaven. Jesus said, "my Father's house has many mansions" and I'm sure they will have a beautiful one!

I will always remember Herb as a "Quintessential" grandfather. He was strong, wise and always there to help. He exuded character and peace, and brought out the best in people. He will be missed here on earth.
