I'm going to miss seeing Herbie on Creek Road. He always had a wave and a smile. He loved the creek and nature. He was a kind, sweet soul. RIP Herbie

So sorry and hurting for all that are feeling Herbie's loss. With having a child by Herbie, I feel this loss too. My thoughts and prayers are with his 3 boys... Ryan, Daniel, and Devon and for the rest of his family and friends.
