To Peggy, Deatra and Kent, and Darin, So hard to lose the special ones like Henry. He always had his ready smile and warm personality to put one at ease. Plus he was such a fine ambassador for the Hermreck brothers and sisters. I know mom always had a soft spot for him as her baby brother and one she helped nurture as a child. Yes, the world is a little less friendly place without Henry Hermreck. And he will be sorely missed; yet that is for us left behind. It is comforting to think of Henry reunited with so many loved ones in Our Father's kingdom. Peggy (and all the family), may God bless you and keep you. Until you meet Henry again. BILL
