It was of great sorrow to hear that Herb has passed away. I worked with Herb during his tenure with C.P. Bourg Inc. He was always a real gentleman to me and someone that I was honored to know. Although being on the West Coast I saw Herb periodically when there were meetings at our New Bedford office. When I was visiting at our office we would go to dinner and have a lot of laughs to say the least. He is a person that will be missed and that makes me sad. To his wife Carol and the immediate family you have my deepest sympathy.
