My condolences to Herb's family. Herb was a great man and a good friend. We both lost our spouses the same year so we went out for many meals together in TX as neither one of us were cooks. We played many games of Dummy Rummy and Tic over the years. I will miss stopping to see him in AR on my way to and from TX.

I’m so sorry for the loss of your loved one. I always enjoyed him coming to eat at 166. He always had a smile on his face when he walked in the door and was so friendly to all of us. We will miss seeing him each day. Blessings and prayers to your family.
