You know your spirit will live on through those of us who loved you.                                                                                                              You touched a lot of hearts in this world buddy. <3 <3 <3 See you when I get there :) E.T.E.R.N.A.L.ॐ L.O.V.E."

This tribute was added by Vickie Briceno on 1st January 2015

"Angela, I am so sorry for the loss of Seth. My prayers are with you and yours. Seth would be so proud of how you are handling everything. He always wanted to be like you. He had a wonderful role model in you. He always loved you and will continue to love you."

This tribute was added by J. Williams on 1st January 2015

"To the family of Seth Everett Hertrich.  I wanted to extend my condolences to the family. I didn't know Seth personally, but I wanted to offer scriptures that is of comfort. The first scripture that I like is the promise made in the Bible at Revelation 21:4.  It says: " And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things have passed away".  So you see Almighty God promises to do away with anything that causes us tears and pain.  Death certainly causes grief, tears and pain.  God promises to do away with these things.  He also promises that he is going to bring back to life our dear loved ones that have fallen  asleep in death.  This he will do, by means of the resurrection. This is in the Bible at John 5:28,29.  This is something wonderful.  Not only is this wonderful for the future.  It is something that is very comforting for us to read about today.  If you would like to know more about death being done away with, or the resurrection hope.  Please feel free to contact me, or go to the website www.jw.org. You will be able to find answers to any questions that you may have."

"I am so sorry sweet sister of mine! One of my funniest and fondest memories with Seth was when we were all at Lake Powell on the house boat for a week. Seth was night fishing and fell asleep in the chair, only to be woken up by a bass on the hook. What a laugh, besides all of the others we had on that trip. I LOVE YOU and will MISS SETH until we meet again... I hope we all have a Great New Year and keep each other safe and have loads of fun together, always, Rainer"

God Bless you and the family as you go thru this. You aren't alone; look up, your help is there! Love you lady and hope to see you next time we are in town!!!"

   You were an amazing man with a heart of gold, Your beautiful soul always would light up a room, and that smile of your always made me smile. I enjoyed all the small converstaions we would have when you  came into the resturant, and even more when I was privliaged enough to work with you when you were younger. Your personality was so amazing  and strong that it will always remain within others. It was such a blessing to me that I got the chance to meet you and get to kniw you and your mom. You will be remembered always and never ever forgotten. Its so sad that we had to lose such an amazing person, but I know that you are happy safe and always watching over everyone. Rest in peace my friend and one day we will meet again, until that day spread your beautiful wings and wrap them around your mom and those that need it.
      I cant come up with words to express my feelings of sadness or sorrow for you and your family right now. I just want you t know that you are family to me always have been always will be... I love you so much Ang and will be here for whatever you may need."

"Dear Angela, we heard with disbelief of the loss of your only son. There is no words to console you in this awful grief for your loved one. Maybe it helps a little to know that our thoughts are with you in this sad time and that we will cherish the nice memories we have of Seth when he came here to Ireland for the family reunion in 2007 and we got to know him as a cheerful sociable youngster with his amazing skills in playing golf. Our hearts go out to you and your mother Gisela and your brothers with family. With deepest sympathy from your cousin and family and also my mother Annemarie who is here with us."

"Angela I have been sitting here trying to find the words to tell you how heartbroken I am to hear of Seth's passing. He was a beautiful soul who is gone way too soon. I missed the opportunity to get to know him however whenever I did see him in passing he was always kind and sweet always with a beautiful smile on his face. My prayers are with you and your family. Anything you need I am here for you. RIP Seth

Nothing can make up for the absence of someone we love, and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute; we must simply hold out and see it through. That sounds very hard at first, but at the same time it is a great consolation, for the gap, as long as it remains unfilled, preserves the bonds between us. It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; He does not fill it, but on the contrary, He keeps it empty and so helps us to keep alive our former communion with each other, even at the cost of pain.”

"Ang your whole family is in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember spending the night in Milliken Leanne and I would be upstairs and Seth and his friends downstairs. We thought we were so sneaky going down stairs at like 1 in the morning to play video games and hang out with them. Then we would all sneak upstairs to get food at like 4am. We thought we were sneaky like I said but I'm positive you knew our every move. I've had some great times with Seth and he will never be forgotten. R.I.P ♡"
