To the Dear family of Herb Brooks, I do want to express my sympathy and condolences. My late husband worked with Herb at the then Hamm's brewry and had many wonderful stories to tell of a young man that had a dream. Well, that dream came true. He was a true winner in the field he chose as his career. I also was lucky enough to know Herb as I worked at a small resturant Serlin's Cafe on the East side of St. Paul not too far from Herb's family home and he would come there to eat and visit with his friends. He loved his hometown. We will miss him. May he now rest in peace.
