Great men and leaders only come once in a life time. Herman was one of them . I always enjoyed chatting with him on my journey from time to time. He was a great man of knowledge in many ways. I felt privileged to be among many drivers that were employed. My prayers and condolences to the family. May honor be stowed in his name forever.
