Norm and I were so happy to have been able to visit Herb and Dolores in the summer of 2006. He was a very talented brother who built many beautiful homes and could play country or classical guitar.
We will be sharing many good memories with family in the next days, weeks, months. love, from your sister Sylvia

From: Pat White
Relation: Family

He was a man who toiled hard for the love of his craft and found great pleasure in the art of creation. A man of few words, but for those that were spoken and for those that were sung, they will remain forever in our hearts. Thanks for your wisdom and love!

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. May you hold tight to the memories for comfort, lean on your friends for strength and always remember how much you are cared about.

Love always
Pat
