Cousin Herb was a principled, genuine and thoughtful man. He invested in family and friends often and gave generously of his time and resources. When I told Herb that I was going back to school full time, he immediately offered to help by covering my first semester’s meal plan. Herb took pride in people close to him and told stories about them often and with enthusiasm. I still remember how he would light up while telling stories of working for his Uncle Joe or him announcing with pride to the staff of a restaurant how I was a Marine Sergeant and was down to visit him. He was engaged with the world around him and open to viewpoints of others. We did not see eye to eye on everything but I could always count on Herb to consider all sides of a story. He’s a good man who’s in heaven now- May he Rest In Peace.

Cousin Herbie was a humble and generous man. He walked through life always holding family first. This was apparent in his stories of joy and love and even those of hardship. Cousin Herbie was the connection we had to the ancestors we never knew but gave everything for us to have a better life. He used to collect small trinkets for us Henderek children and at the end of every visit Herbie would give each of us a small gift. Whether it was a key chain, a small box of chocolates, pens, a new tee-shirt, or coins, the gesture was always in love. Herbie is at peace now and reunited in the Heavens with his beloved mother.
