    Dear Gwen& family
    I am so sorry for your loss. Life will be so lonely with out Herb.
    My late husband, Roy,and I and our family shared many a great time with your family at your lake, years ago. We had such good time together when our families were growing up. Remember all the tent caterpillars dripping off the trees, or our dog, Penny, rolling in the dead fish, just before we we had to leave for home?
    I have such good memories of the times we spent together.
    My deepest Sympathy goes to you and your family, Gwen.
