Dearest Mara, Jeff, Bob & families. Our hearts are saddened by the loss of your father. I loved Herb's huge, friendly smile & his whole-heart laugh. I appreciated his sense of humor & his photography talent. He & Diane were my home away from home in my teen years, my bonus parents. He will be missed tremendously. His legacy lives on through you three & your beautiful & successful adult children. May His memory be a blessing. Peace be with you all. With our love & deepest sympathy, Warren & Vivian
