Herman was a classmate of mine in the class of 55 at Paris High School. Came to many of our class reunions, Enjoyed visiting with him and his wife. He will be missed, Prayers
I think of Herman, and I smile that he liked my letters. I wrote to Grace, but he liked to get my cards and letters as well. I started to address the mail to Herman and Grace. We never met in person, but I felt like I knew him well. I was friends with Grace from our teenage years. We kept in correspondence over the years. And added Herman to our correspondence. Grace and I are both strong in our faith in Jesus Christ. I know Herman will be missed, but Grace you may have a whole new ministry in front of you. Jesus used many examples of Widows. My favorite is "Anna" in Luke. I pray that God will comfort and bring good things for you Grace. I send my condolences for Herman, God will never leave you Grace, stay close to Jesus
Grace, so sorry for your loss. He will be mussed. Keeping you all in your thoughts and prayers.
Uncle Herman, May you soar with the angels and rest in the Lord’s loving arms! We will miss you but know that we’ll see you again. Aunt Grace, we will continue to pray for peace.
