Not sure what to say?

Ann and family-
54 years ago, I was so lucky to have the handsome and inspiring Mr. Anderson as my fifth grade teacher at Morley. He had us write something, anything every single week. He gave me much positive reinforcement for what I produced and I learned to love writing. I have been writing in one form or another every since. Because of him. My mom saw him over the years at events for retired educators and he always said he remembered my class and me which I found amazing. I...

Dear Anderson Family,

I will always remember and cherish the times I spent with Herm. When Herm was around, it was impossible to feel down!

Dear Ann, Herm was one of the first teachers I met as I began my teaching career in West Hartford. He always had a kind word of encouragement, a warm smile and even a hug on one of those tough days. He made coming to school a delight. His "joie de vivre" was infectious! Herm will be missed by his many friends

Ann & Family. Our sincere condolences on your loss. Our son-in-law, Alan truly will cherish all the fun memories of the great times he had with "Uncle Herm." I'm sure the Bronson boys will always remember him with great fondness.

Ann & Family: Our sincere condolences to all of you. Our son-in-law Al truly enjoyed all the great times with "Uncle Herm." He was a great guy all- around and will surely be missed. Sandra & Fred Meyers

from 5th grade teacher Webster Hill elementary in '71 to softball competitor/friend in the 80s and 90s. No one had a bigger impact on me(and I imagine many others). A truly wonderful man, teacher and friend - all fond memories and all will last forever.

In loving memory of Herm
We will miss you.
You will fly on eagles wings, soar with eagles.

Hi Ann. Sending my sympathies to you and family. Herm and I served in the WHEA for years and he was always a fun guy to work with. I dont think I realized until this obituary that we shared the same home town of New Britain. One of the disadvantages of moving away is not being able to gather with old colleagues and share memories. I'm sure there will be many stories to share. Rosemarie Lentini
