How sad to hear about the loss of Herb. He was such a fine man with a heart of gold. Absolutely nothing he wouldn't do for his family or employees. 

I have lost contact with Lee Ann, his wife, Adair and her daughter and the grandchild and Buck; and sisters Jean and  .  I would appreciate if a classmate in Roswell would let them know of our sympathies.
