Hershel was one of the kindest gentlemen I have ever had the pleasure of taking care of. When I worked at AG he would always tell me my red hair reminded him of his late wife, and would continue on to tell me some wonderful stories. I can only hope that he is at peace and in no more pain. Rest easy sweet man. You were so loved
