    Always looked forward to seeing and talking to Herbert. He had a quiet, easy way of offering his advice and wisdom. He was a “Gentle” man who seemed to always be calm even in bad times. Darline, Huey, and Brenda so sorry to lose him. Take some comfort in knowing that he is with your momma now.
    I will miss him!

    Uncle Herbert was a wonderful Uncle, and a true joy to be around. I called him my boyfriend and he would have the biggest smile. It is with a heavy heart that we must say goodbye. My love and condolence to Darline, Brenda and Huey and his many family members. Rest in peace Uncle Herbert.
