Dear Nancy and family- our sincere condolences on the loss of Herschel. He is such a rare bright light in the world, spreading happiness wherever he went. I always had a smile on my face while talking to him. He will be deeply missed by our family- including Herschel’s friend Sawyer - and everyone here in the neighborhood. Rest In Peace Herschel. God bless and comfort Nancy and family. John, Sue and Jordan Morley.

Herschel was one of the finest people I have ever known. It’s easy for people to say nice words but it is the rare person who shows up day after day to be a true friend. Herschel was one of those people. Dogs loved him as well! I have wonderful memories of he and Frankie riding through Barrington together on his scooter. You were blessed to call Herschel your friend!

I first met Herschel on the day I came to look at the house I subsequently bought across the street from Nancy & Herschel's house. He came right up to me and started talking. We formed an immediate friendship and he filled me in on the house and the neighborhood. He made me feel comfortable and I liked the house so I bought it. That was about 4 1/2 years ago and the friendship has only deepened with him & Nancy & their dog, Sylvia since then. Herschel was a warm friendly human being and I couldn't ask for better neighbors. He will be deeply missed.

Herschel was one of the finest people I have ever known. There are plenty of people willing to provide words but not many who will come around and make their presence felt- Herschel was one of those people who showed up on a daily basis and put sunshine into your day. I have many fond memories but perhaps my favorite is he and Frankie riding through Barrington on his scooter together! We lost one of the very few good guys left in this world.
