Herm, saying you'll be dearly missed by many is an understatement, but you will be. Many lifelong memories I have of you sitting with all of us sharing stories while puffing on a cigar & enjoying a cold Old Style. Your infectious laugh, kindness & generosity to give is how I remember you. Stopping by to visit with you & watching the Cubbies for a few innings was always fun. When telling you I've gotta go you'd ask me, need a few quarters kiddo? The reply was always yes I do & then you'd pull out all your change from your pocket & say, here ya go don't blow it all on candy!! Kind soul & I will miss you. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
