Larrie and Craig we are sorry for the loss of Uncle Herb our thoughts and prayers are with you both and your family’s also. Bobby and Lorraine
Thank you for your service you will truly be missed
To Craig, Larrie, Donna and all the members of your family. My sincere condolences on your loss. I first met Herb when I was 9 years old and he was our mailman at 24 Benbridge Ave. in Lakewood, RI. I had no idea of the family relationship at that time. Neither did I know that a few years later I would spend time at my best friends home on Canonchet Ave and Fair street, directly across from the little store that Gloria worked in. Many years later I learned of Donna's relationship to the family and I was blessed with renewing old friendships by visiting Melbourne with Donna. Being born in 1941, just 23 days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, I grew up and was very much aware of the men who went to far away lands and many came back badly injured, or not at all. I grew up with burned in respect and admiration for the young heroes that fought to keep our freedom. once I was old enough to enlist, I had the opportunity to serve duty to my country. I am proud of that, and it was entirely because of men like Herb. He was very much a hero. I will miss him. My love to you all. If it were at all possible I would be there to pay my respects. That being impossible, I send you my love and a silent salute to Herb.
