Betty, I am so sorry about Herb. I didn’t know anything had happened until later that day when my son called me and asked if I knew an 82 year old man who died at dialysis this morning. I should have figured something was different when I got in the hall and no one was there. Usually Herb is thee first one out there and then when I went to the waiting room it was empty. That was very unusual not seeing you and have you alert me if my driver was there yet. I will miss you and Herb very much. Please accept my condolences for your loss. If you need anything let me know. You are in my prayers Betty.
