Dear Mrs. Herman, Karen, Cindy, Donald, Tony & Extended Family, I was very saddened to hear of Mr. Herman's passing. I knew Mr. Herman almost as long as I knew my parents. Mr. Herman always had a smile on his face and a hug for you. Losing a father or husband can be extremely difficult because you are losing a source of strength and stability in your life. He will be missed by all those who knew and loved him. His legacy will live on in your hearts. I pray that God will put him in a special place where he will watch over all of you and the people who loved and cherished him. Please accept my sincere condolences. May god comfort you in the days ahead. Love, Chris Gover Friend of the Family Chris Gover
