I remember you and Kelly visiting our family on Grange street many times years ago. I always thought of you as a brother and it breaks my heart to learn of your passing. Our families had many good memories together over the years. Until we meet again, rest in peace.

I remember back when you graduated from high school and I gave you a Bowie hunting knife, you thought that it was the greatest thing. I also remember our last conversation at your Dad's funeral. No one knows when God is going to bring us home. Rest in peace your trails are over.

I will always have great memories of hunting,fishing ,working with and hanging out with my great friend Herb and his family. There's nothing he wouldn't do for anyone and if called you his friend, he meant it and treated you like family.
