I didn't know Herman but my father did. Just from the words I hear from my father I can tell Herman was a good man. To his family: This might be the worse time of your life. Just continue to lean on God. He is there and will carry you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Herman and I have been friends for as long as I can remember. I loved hearing stories about hunting and fishing with my brother Emery. They had a good one to tell at the New Years eve Party. He will be missed by so many people and I am one of those people. I know Herman would say do not cry over me go on with your life. We love and miss you. Joyce and Donna my thought and prayers are with you both. Love Paul & Elaine Wilson.
