Virginia and Herb,
My brother and I were very sad to hear of your Dad's passing. Your parents were great neighbors to us when we lived and grew up on Monroe Street. Virginia, you were our favorite baby sitter until you left for nursing school and Herb and Barb were about the same age, I think. It would be good if we could get in touch after all these years.
Grandpa you and Grandma spent 80 years together on this earth. Not all of them perfect, but the two of you were a living example of hard work, ethics, manners, and kindness, all of which you passed on to your grandchildren and great grandchildren. Your legacy lives on in each of us. We won't ever forget you both. Grandpa, I love and miss you and the world seems less humorous without you in it. I hope you and Grandma are young again and free from all the trials of old age on this earth. I think always of the songs you made up, and every time I see Threes Company on TV I laugh at your dead on Mr Roper impression. Lawrence Welk and polka time.....you made our childhood so much fun. Thanks for being my grandpa for 48 years.
Herb, I am so sorry for your loss. Your father lived to a wonderful age and you have that to be thankful for. God Bless you and your family.
So many memories with the Poppes on Monroe street. I use to help Mrs. Poppe cut Dandelions and always enjoyed spending time in the summer talking. I remember playing with their Grand Daughter the summer they lived with them. They were great people, there was always a lesson taught by Mrs. Poppe. May God be with the Family at this time.

I miss you, Grandpa. Glad you are together with Grandma again.
We were so sorry to hear of the loss of "Mr. Poppe". We remember him as such a kind and friendly man. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Herb was a wonderful man. Our sympathy to all the family. I know you will miss him. So sorry he didn't get to see his beloved Cubs go to the World Series.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Dear Cheryl and Herb, Sorry for your loss, may God bless you and your family, Sincerely Karen Fowler
Gina and Family...
So sorry for the loss of a wonderful man. A man I got to know well while he was on IMCU. I had the pleasure of taking care of him, listening to his stories and listening to his singing. Especially SILENT NIGHT. A song we sang together. He laughed at that.He laughed a lot...a very happy man,living a long and wonderful life. You were so BLESSED to have all the years with him...He'll always remain in your heart...GOD BLESS all of you.
