Barb, I send my prayers and love to you and your family.
You had many wonderful years together and children to
make your family complete. God gave you both so much time together and memories all along the way.
Again, God will be with you every day.

To the Herrold family, I remember all those good times we shared sitting up in the first turn grandstand bleachers at Selinsgrove Speedway. Many good memories filled with laughter and wonderful conversation. Please accept my deepest sympathy in the passing of "Pee Wee". Know that he is with God and free of suffering. May you find peace in your time of sorrow.
