What a life fully lived. After retirement I remember visiting Herb at the store and then going on to my cousin Dee's. I always enjoyed both visits. My Mother's oldest sister was Hardin's Mother. My Dad's roots were in Meigs County even though he spent 27 years of his early life in California. It was during that time that I was born in Porterville. Herb's body is gone but the wonderful memories will last forever. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
