George & Willis along with the entire Herman family, we are sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. I know I can speak on behalf of my sister (Kaye) and we hope that you'll remember to journey that your mother & dad offered you all in what used to be the little town of Butner (where everyone knew each other), hold these times close now and use them to reflect on the great times that your family enjoyed together.
