My most sincere condolences to all the Herring family. Henry was a very loved person among my family. His pure love and dedication to his wife and family was greatly admired. I loved to see the sparkle in his eye when he would get a new gadget and was showing it. He also got that sparkle when he got a new batch of ribbon candy or some Wolf Chili. His stories always wonderful and reminiscing. It was an immense honor to have known him.
