I moved from NJ in 2007 and have always had my hair cut by Laura. I therefore got to know Herbie who was always there. He ALWAYS had a smile and like most people, I felt I got to know him. He was never in a bad mood and was a shining light. He was always engaged with his customers and fellow salon clients. He seemed to truly care about everyone. I only learned of his passing yesterday when I went in to get my hair cut. To say he will be missed is an understatement. One can only hope that when we pass on, we will be spoken of so highly. Herbie is an inspiration to all to be that positive light in peoples world. His amazing smile will be greatly missed.

Herbie had a great spirit and always knew how to make someone smile, no matter what they were going through. He had a kind soul and will be greatly missed!!

To Marie, Bobby, Friends and Family. We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We remember when Herbie was born and how sweet, talented, loving, and so very special he always was. Everybody loved Herbie, and we know how proud Bobby and Marie were of him. Our hearts go out to you and we Pray that God, and your precious memories sustain you through this terrible loss. We will continue to Pray for you in the sad days ahead.

Who could have ever asked for a more loving sweet cousin. I have so many great memories with Herbie. We drove to Mississippi in a hot car a many a day, mad mud pies (which Aunt Rea didn't approve of), hid boiled Easter eggs for at least a week. We shared a lot of great times and I will miss them dearly. I am greatful I was able to make him smile one last time talking about our fun times. I always loved to hear him sing. Not only a wonderful cousin but a great friend I will never forget. I know he is having a grat time in heaven with his Aunt Violet and grandparents. Love and miss you Herbie!

I know how difficult it is to lose a child and my heart goes out to you. You have my thoughts and prayers at this most challenging time. We may not understand it, but God does and we can take comfort in knowing He is in control. You can make it through anything as long as you rely on Him. I am truly sorry for your loss.

My deepest condolences to all of Herbie's family and friends. He was one of the first people I met in Wilmington who made me feel welcome and loved. The hair style, though always awesome, was the least important thing I came away with after visiting Herbie - he always was interested in my life, my work, my family. I will so miss his laughter, his hugs, the light of his personality. The angels are lucky to have him.
