To My Big Little Brother, Herb: You were ALWAYS forgetting I am (one of) your older sister(s), you would always tell me to take care of my business before you would take care of it for me. You would ALWAYS be the first to ask me what are you up to and where are you, over the years I was out on my own. You would ALWAYS have that element of surprise in letting me know you knew what I was doing, where, when, who I was doing whatever with. You were ALWAYS the one who would have that comic relief humor we all inherited from our Parents, but with the happy tears whenever you shared your stories. You ALWAYS had that laid back, but I'm serious approach like our "COOL HERB" Daddy did. Herb, I'm gonna miss that and more cause your ALWAYS GONNA BE THE BIG BROTHER THAT I NEVER HAD AND WE'RE ALWAYS GONNA MISS YOU....EVERY DAY. We Love You, Rest in Heaven/Peace, with Mummy, Daddy & Maureen. ALWAYS, Your Loving Family. Till We Meet Again, XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX
