So sorry for your loss. Herb was a wonderful Brother-in-law. He was kind and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He will be missed.

Like Herbie I also worked at Selinsgrove Center, I was an aide and he was in dietary, I got to know him, and enjoyed talking to him when he would come back to the living areas to bring stuff back from dietary. He was a soft spoken gentleman that was so nice to be around, spent many a times talking to him, enjoyed his company, then after retirement I got to see him occasionally at the restaurant. Prayers go out to his family at this time.
