"Dad would have loved to celebrate his oldest sister's 100th birthday - she is truly amazing! I know he will be there in spirit. I remember clearly arriving in Seattle 1 year ago today and finding out that he had left just before the plane landed.  I am so grateful for the time spent with him at his home in Renton last summer (& time with Chula too). I am so grateful for his presence in my life and in my memories! Also grateful to be born a Stroh!"

"Herb set an example for us in how to live one's life with grace, dignity, charity and wit.  Every encounter I had with him left me the warmer for having interacted with him.  He never seemed rushed or distracted when in conversation.  And he always seemed so positive and reassuring...and calming.  A true gentleman!  It was a privilege to have been part of his life and to have him in mine."

"Dear Herb, Looking at all the happy photos of you with family and friends makes me understand that you were a warm and loving man.  This was proven by the last time I saw you, at Sasha's graduation party.  What effort that trip must have taken knowing that you weren't feeling well. The many stories I've heard of your life is that it was sincere, adventurous, and full of spirit!  You live on through your beautiful daughters and grandchildren who miss you greatly, but are with you in spirit, even now."

"I feel so fortunate to have you as my father. We have shared some wonderful adventures together and I will always carry those memories close to my heart. Words feel so inadequate but I know that I can talk with you in spirit and that you understand my sorrow and joys.  I love you forever.  Liz"
