Mom and I are so sorry to hear of Uncle Herk's passing. So many memories of great times growing up with all of you! All the cookouts, swimming and crabbing, playing ball in the backyard and just "hanging out." Uncle Herk was like my 2nd father. About 3 years ago we were in town and stopped by the house. It was SO GOOD to see Aunt Margaret and Uncle Herk again. I remember Uncle Herk had just had a hip replacement a couple of years previous to that and he was the same wonderful fun loving guy I had remembered from years ago. Just a bit slower. Sat there and watched the Braves game with him while Mom and Aunt Margaret had a great old fashioned gab fest like they always used to do when we were kids. So glad we took the time to stop by that day! RIP Uncle Herk. You will always be remembered.
