Herman was a wonderful tree steward. Fun to be around, knowledgeable, and always ready to help a new member learn. Herman also had a great smile!

I was sad to hear of his passing but know he is in a better place... and probably putting those angels to work ! My deepest sympathy to the family.

I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Sorry to hear of Herman's passing. He was a good friend and one of my Meals On Wheels drivers and very faithful to MOW. He is now an angel of GOD, and in a much better place.
