    Our condolences goes out to Anne and all her family during this very difficult time. We’ve only known Herbie for the last couple years but because of the kind and caring demeaner that he emitted, just knowing him, instantly grew into a great friendship, and we will miss him dearly, as will all who knew him.

    I just want to offer my condolences to uncle Herb’s family , I know what you are going through. It doesn’t seem fair to loose the ones you love so much to this horrible disease but, If there is a more beautiful place than Nova Scotia I’m sure he is at peace there.

    Sorry to find out about Herb’s passing in this manner; via internet search on family,

    I share a lot of memories of him, but the ones that stick with me best of all are those of my early childhood years. Not all of them great, but some of them that characterised Herb as a man of both honor and family in some way, shape, or form. Yet, still maintaining his own uniqueness that defined him and only him as Herb; most especially his trully unique presence was known when he entered a room with his resounding footsteps, extended gait, and manly posture. To me that really defined Herb and nobody could enter a room and capture somebody’s full attention in an instance any better than he…

    Both your presence and your passing will be with many of us always. May you now rest in peace…

    (One of Beatrice’s & Byron’s)

    Phil (PJ), sorry to hear about your father, too. He was a gentle giant and a great man in my eyes.
    Any family members wishing to contact me may do so at:
    Yes, I’m still in the Orient for the time being.
