I'm sorry for your loss. Eugene seemed like a great person. Fortunately there is hope to see him again as Jehovah God promises to bring the dead back to life in Acts 24:15. If one would like more free bible based information please visit JW.org.

Herman was definitely one of a kind. He had a big heart and loved unconditionally. He didn't judge people by what they were going thru. He accepted people for who they truly were. I loved and respected Herman alot. He made it easy to laugh and talk with him. He liked to talk about anything and everything. He loved his family with all he had. The world lost a special soul and heaven gained one. But Herman's mark on this earth can never fade. You will be missed and thought of often. Thank you for the time I had the privilege of knowing you.
