H, obituaries


  1. Dear Family, death is an enemy of all mankind so even though we don’t know each other I grieve with you. May you find comfort in this promise that our Heavenly Father Jehovah made in Revelation 21:3-5. Then as 1 Corinthians 15:26 says “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.”

  2. I would like to express my deep sympathy for the family of Herb. Although we had only known him for the last two years, he left an indelible impression on our whole family, as a person of extraordinary character. He was immediately open, and giving, and wanted us to learn what we could from his knowledge, as well as his mistakes. Our young daughters appreciated him as well. Herb will be missed, but it is clear that he had acheived becoming, “a beautiful soul” as Friedrich Schiller describes, and as such, he will be with us always, to guide our passions, and intentions, to the benefit and betterment of our fellow man. Thank you, Herb.
    From: the Kanitz family
