Wisdom sprang deep in your soul
You are truly going to be missed, Herman B.
In your expression could be seen a love of humanity.
Fountains of goodness and wisdom sprang deep in your soul.
No failing of good character marred your earthly quest of better educational goals.
A last wish for you is this:
May you rest in heavenly bliss.
