I was a partner at Rosewood Funeral Chapels until I retired in May 2016. I met Mr. Hanselman when his son Mike passed away . Mike was a Deputy at Victoria County Sheriffs Office of which I was a reserve deputy for 20 years and road patrol with his son Mike for many years. Mr. John Hanselman was a very kind man and well respected in Victoria County. May god bless the entire Hanselman family.

We are so sorry to hear of his passing. Herbert was part of our family for so many years it is hard to picture him not being here anymore. Sending our sympathy to his children and grandchildren!
