    Herb and I became close friends in 1966. He has the kindest heart of any man and truly loves the Lord. My heart goes out to all who love him and will miss him as I will, until we meet again with the Saviour.

    Herb and Ruth were both very special people, Roger. After Ruth passed, Herb continued to be an inspiration to others by his attendance at church and positive attitude about having you, Vangie, Mika, and Daniel in his life.
    Thoughts and prayers for you and your family, Roger ????????????

    Uncle Herb was a pillar of a man.
    When he walked into a room, he brought security and stability. Being one of the most patient men around, some of us were convinced that he had actually learned how to sleep with his eyes open to accommodate long storytelling. A quiet man of few words, he always went straight to the point. Once, on a visit, my sister Donelle helped him “fix” something on his computer (I think by turning it off and then turning it back on again) – when the computer acted up again, he walked straight into the room where I was sitting and said simply, “Find Donelle.” My other sister, Julie, developed a sweet correspondence with Uncle Herb who would send lovely handwritten notes in the mail. One holiday card to her read, “Tell Janet Merry Christmas. I don’t have her address. Love, Herb”
    When my own father died, Herb stepped up to fill a gap. His huge gestures of generosity were delivered with quiet humility, but I will never forget his kindness. And his rolled up jeans. I am so sorry that the world is now without this gentle soul.

    I enjoyed knowing Herbie and always thought of him as such a quiet gentleman. He will be missed.

    Roger, I pray the Lord’s comfort for you (Phil. 4:7) each moment of each day at this time of your Dad’s home going. Please also give Vangie, Mika & Daniel a brother’s hug for me. It was good to know your Dad (and Mom, too) at our Lawrence fellowship. But I was very blessed when you came with him and visited me in KCMO. During most of the years I knew Herb, as others have noted, I’ll always recall him a quiet man. That quietness does have peacefulness attached to it. It reminds me of a most favorite verse I have in Zephaniah 3:17, where the the “Lord our God” is described: “He will be quiet in His love.” I know Herb loved the Lord, your Mom, and all the family, and will be missed. God bless you all in the days ahead.
