My sympathies to Helen on the passing of Herb. I knew him for a short time when I worked in the Fall River office of the "light" company in the early 70's. I also worked with Helen for a time in the Franklin office of National Grid in 2001-2004. We worked hard but also enjoyed some fun times. I hope your memories are of comfort to you in the days ahead.
