To Donna and family, Please accept my sincere sympathy at Herb's death. He was a very kind man and you both were so good to Duane. It seems many years ago that we met, but time marches on and we have shared some special memories through the years. It is hard to believe that he is gone, but now he and Duane are together and waiting and watching for other family members who will follow them to their heavenly home. God bless you at this time!
