It is so safe to say your departure, Herbert, truly is affecting our generations. Young people who knew you would share memories with gleaming eyes and older people who personally knew you were extremely stunned by your quick departure. You have left behind a very beautiful legacy and your family will carry on your legacy. The deep ingrained laughter, the throaty hugs and the memories of growing up with the community of our families involved with our children. Eleanor, Jody, Janis and loved ones, our condolences. Take comfort in knowing that your family grieves not alone but as a community as Herbert is loved by so many.

Jody

I am reaching out to you today to express my condolences to you , Janice, Eleanor and your families. I have fond memories of Herbert any time we would meet, his eyes would light up and he would be genuinely interested in what I was doing.
This sudden lose must be difficult and I do not know how it would feel. I could not connect due to the timeline. Joanne and Jim will let me know when the celebration of life is arranged and I will look forward to meet and visit with you then.
Again thoughts from Jess and I in this difficult time.

Think of the good times !

My heartfelt condolences goes out to the Cripps family. I have fond memories of Herbert from our family gatherings over the years. His smiling eyes and contagious laughter is what I will remember the most. Herbert and my dad were childhood friends...both of them had a way to get everyone to live in the moment, simply just loving and enjoying life. I hope they meet again and continue to bring joy with people they encounter.

Eleanor, Jody, Janis, Jim, Joanne and to the rest of your family...my thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Hugs

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Mr Cripps, who is the father of our daughter's childhood friend, Janis. Even though we were not great at ASL, Herbert's friendly smile and twinkly eyes always made us feel welcome whenever we would meet. He and Eleanor always looked to have a terrific relationship and seemed to be such good friends.
This is a heart-breaking loss and he has been lost far too soon.
Keeping the entire Cripps family in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
Lynn and Don Roy
