I knew Herman and his parents as a youngster living in New York until I was 8. Herman and I are the same age. When I saw his name on the list of 9-11 victims I was so sad and amazed that living in California I actually recognized one of the names of those killed. It was a haunting feeling and made me realize how small this world really is. I can remember our young family visiting Herman and his parents. My mom and Mrs. Broghammer were especially good friends. I remember receiving Christmas cards from the Broghammer family each year after we moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I do not know the words to express my sadness of your loss and the loss to Herman's whole family. Reading the information on Herman lets me know that he lived a full and happy life.
I am so sorry for your loss of Herman.
