Herschel was the kindest brother-in-law I could ever have. From the first time I met him at age 14 I have loved him
Besides being kind he was thoughtful and generous. He never said a bad word about anyone. I am ashamed to say i never kept in touch with him as much as I should have. He will be sorely missed by his family and everyone who new him.
Nancy and Lee you lost a wonderful father, a loving grandfather, and friend to all who knew him.
