I am so sorry that Dr. Herry is no longer with us. It was a lot of fun working with him at Tyson (USDA) in seguin. He was without a doubt the best supervisor I have ever had. Gary Reimer.

I was just a classmate of Eugene during our senior year in 1960.
Eugene and I did not know each other real well but were both sweet for the same young lady, me during highschool and Eugene afterwards. Eugene won Frances' heart and they had a long and apparently happy and full life together.

Frances, please accept my sincerest sympathy in your loss. I know somewhat how you are feeling as I lost the love of my life a few years ago. It took me a while to get my life back on track and I expect it will be the same for you.

Take it one day at a time and rely on your family and friends. And on your God.

If you feel the need to talk to an outside party about anything, you can call me anytime (380-992-0584).

Again, I want to extend my sincerest sympathy.
