When someone very special to us leaves the world, I believe that they reveal a special life lesson to each of us. Herm taught me that love is an action. He showed me love at times when I was quite unlovable. He supported me like a Father during the hardest time in my life. He heard me when no one else would listen. I will miss him and will never forget the undeserved love and kindness he gave to me. Love, Jody

Dear Mom, I wish with all my heart that our family could be with you on Thursday. Please convey to Mike and Rosie, Mark and Susie, and Sue and Jerry and their families how lucky we feel to have had Herm as part of our lives and how grateful we are for the happiness you brought to each other. Herm was a wonderful grandfather to our children and we appreciate his kindness so much. Love, Robbi

Grandpa Herm by Cate Battey Grandpa Herm would get up every morning and yawn. He\'d look outside his window to see the pretty dawn. He\'d wake up his wife the beautiful Nana. And he would start making breakfast while she was still in her pajamas. He made some pancakes with sweet syrup on top. Then he\'d get a pad of butter that made the sound PLOP! He\'d put the pancakes on a tray and bring it to his wife. She said mmmm these are the best pancakes in my life! The End Love, Cate B.

Dear Nana, I\'m really sad that Grandpa died. I think that he\'s happier in heaven. One good thing about him is he always used to make me laugh. I think that you should come to visit us soon so that you\'re not as lonely. Love, A.J.

Dear Pat, It was so sad hearing of the loss of Herman. How we wish we could have been with you through this difficult time. Our hearts ache for you. But how lucky he was to have had such a wonderful wife and companion. And you, of course, were lucky, too. We know how very much he loved and appreciated you each and every day, especially during the last years of his life. You were always there for him and your caring and love came through. We are sure he left his earthly life in peace knowing that his time here was over and knowing that you would join him when it was time. That\'s what real love is all about. God bless and keep you. We know His love will enfold and comfort you. We love you very much. While we grieve for you and your loss, we also will always have happy memories of the times we enjoyed with both of you in the past. We are away now but will be home soon and then our hugs, we hope, will sustain you and we can remember together. You are a dear, dear friend. Love, Jerry and Nancy Kroll

We count ourselves fortunate to have known - even if all too briefly, this very likeable guy. We\'ve had, alas, friends come and go, but we\'ve few that were more giving in friendship than Herm. In the scheme of things he had a good life and made the most of it - even when it was a battle for him. His was a significant life. Folks truly liked him and enjoyed being with him - an elusive achievement in anyone\'s life. He will be in our hearts and in - the too few - but very good memories we share of him. We will miss Herm - and will remember him. We wanted you to know.

Alex Battey left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Pat: Our entire family shares your loss as Herm was such a tremendously warm and funny "Grampa". Whether he was kicking the tennis ball for Seamus, bragging about the Packers, playing with our kids or teaching me how to cook brats, Herm always approached life with a sense of humor and a willingness to give to others. We all will miss him! Alex
