|I had the privledge of meeting and working for Herman in 1991 at Kaydon Corp. in Greeneville. Herman was my foreman and a good man to work for. He cared about his job and his employees with alot of respect. I would like to extend my condolences to his wife and kids (whom he always talked about at work). I know from the stories he would tell me that, that he loved his wife and square dancing. will be missed very much. |

|Gerald, Stevie, Lisa and Detra,
I am saddened to learn of the passing of Uncle Herman. I last saw him at Uncle Carroll's funeral and enjoyed talking to him so much as I hadn't see him in many years. I learned that day that he and Aunt Gerald square danced with my good neighbors, Betty and Ron(Ron has since passed as well). He was always such a sweet and kind man and will be missed by all. May God be with each of you in this time of sorrow and always cherish the wonderful memories until you see him once again in heaven.
Love Rita and Sonny|
|To Steve Treadway & Family, I am truly sorry for the loss of your Dad. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.
