My name is Michael Meredith, and my Dad is C.L.Meredith and he asked me to go on the computer and get what ever information I could for him. I never knew Herby, but I heard my Dad say and speak of him many times. I can see in the pictures that he loved his life, his family and the babies and the children and I'm sadden for the family's loss also and the friend that my Dad lost. My Dad hasn't accepted computers so I will send his deepest condolences for him, to all that Herby leaves behind. C.L.Meredith, B A for Painters Local Union, Houston, Texas

I just found out that Herby passed away. I enjoyed going to lunch with him and talking about Longhorn football. I could never repay his generosity. He was always nice to me and my mother. Rest in peace my friend. God will bless your family and friends.

You will ALWAYS and FOREVER be a part of mine!

Herby's heart was even bigger than he was, and he was a big guy, as we all know. He even helped with moving some furniture and a mattress for a woman who was down and out, when no one else would help. He called to check on me numberous times when he, himself, was in rehab.for his back injury. Always thinking of others! That is how I will always remember Herbie..

Herby was first in to the cafe on Sunday mornings and I was second. I will miss Herby and his humor and spirit. Herby loved to drive the church bus and was quite the ambassador. Thanks for the memories my friend.

There are so many things I will miss about Herby - he was the first one in the cafe on Sunday morning, his wonderful beans and cornbread that he brought to the office, his sweet smile and gentle nature that he so easily shared with everyone and his willingness to help serve others. Bethany will miss him and we are blessed to have been a part of his life. Rest in peace my sweet friend.

Rick, Doty, and Tater,
Expressing my deep sympathy. Your dad was a greatly loved volunteer at the House of Friends, a community outreach respite program that meets weekly at Bethany United Methodist Church, providing a therapeutic social day out for those with Alzheimer's and other dementias, while giving a welcome time away for the family caregivers. Herby was an active member on our support team since 2006. He was gentle and kind, having a heart for loving those in need. He embraced old and new friends with energy and love. Susie Petersen, Director, House of Friends

Fondly,
Johnny and Linda Gibson
