I always felt safe on the property knowing that Herbert was so close by. Driving by his house and seeing his car or truck made me happy. He had a wonderful sense of humor and brought much laughter to out get togethers. He will be missed...

May I offer my sincere condolences for your loss.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

One of the few people in this world that I can say added value to my life. I saw him give and give when he didn't have it. Taught me a lot about giving and his friendship and sense of humor I will sorely miss. Honest and caring. Take rest my friend. Life's trials and tribulations can no longer touch you. Peace and comfort to the family. May the God of all comfort be with you during your time of parting.

I know I am selfish. I never considered that you would really leave. Just two weeks ago you told me to call you if I needed anything, when I was telling you how I worried about your oxygen level dropping so low. I thought of you all day Monday an uneasy feeling I was going to see you Tuesday. When I got the call about your decline I left and flew to your side and when I saw you i knew our time was far too short. In life I tried to honor you, and I will continue to do that. Thank you for being a man I could look up to and always be proud to say you were my Uncle. God knows I miss you and I feel lost. I also know you woud not want me to be sad but remember you with a smile. I will check on Pat, Kim, and your babies and smile warmly when I do for it will be to honor you. I love You Unk... RIP

Herbert, I knew as "Sonny." His dad always just called him Son. Sonny and I were childhood friends, from the age of 9 until about 17 when a lot of our school friends transferred to the County High School. We rode our bikes from his house to baseball practice at Idle Hour Park and most of Russell County. Hunting, fishing, camping weeks at a time in summer, swimming in the creek with friends, gathering up a group of boys, David Webb, Tommy Kelly, to attend church on most Sundays.
And help me greatly at the trial of my fathers murder. He would set beside me in court and chat during breaks. The D.A. was another of our Central High School friends Harold Davis.
"To be absent from this body is to be with our Lord" Go rest high upon the mountain young man, and may the Grace of our Heavenly Father bring peace to all of your family at this time of loss.

I only knew Herbert for a short time and our exchanges were nightly during the week when he would call to check on his beloved Pat. I always looked forward to those calls, brief as they were. I pray for comfort and peace for you all during the days and weeks to come.
