“I have known Herman most of my life. He was 2 years ahead of me in school, but being from a small school, we knew everyone. I am sending hugs and sympathy to Margaret, Pat, and Jeff, and am praying for his children and the rest of the family. It was always fun to visit with him, I often would see him at the Library at Lohrville on Friday mornings, when us "Seniors" would gather for visiting over a cup of coffee and a donut. God Bless all of you. Linda Lou Parker Hay.”
