Dear Herber family,

Many good memories
of Uncle Jerome! Always smiling and cheerful. May God comfort you in your loss with all the wonderful memories. We were in Idaho visiting Mike and Catherine when this happened so we're unable to come to the funeral home.

God bless,

Dave and Sharon Scheiber

Sending my heartfelt condolences to Aunt Pat and all my Herber cousins and Uncle Jerome’s brothers and sisters. I’ll bet Uncle Jerome is already chewing on a cigar and slapping down the cards playing euchre with Grandpa and Grandma in heaven. Rest In Peace dear Uncle.
