Bob and I send our sympathy to all of Herb's family. We first became acquainted with him and his wife Elaine when they were retired but volunteering nearly full time for Crossover Ministries and Court St. United Methodist Church. Together they made a big difference in the lives of all they met (or never met) through their generous gift of time and effort to keep Crossover afloat. They served with humility and kindness. True role models.

Mr. Wansitler, what an awesome individual. One of the most kindest and caring individuals I have ever come to know. Was always so nice and kind to people. He will never be forgotten.
