I wish I could be there to be a part of Uncle Herbert's Memorial. My condolences and love to you all. I found this picture from Herbert's 90th celebration, he seemed to really enjoy conversation with dad that day... a very happy occasion. So sorry I could not join you all.

Your dad was such a good friend to my dad, Joe Wehr. My sympathy to your family. Jeanette Gent
