In memory of my friend Herb. May you rest in forever loving peace

I am sharing some thoughts about a dear friend, a member of my church and a fellow journeyman of the Order of Masons. Herb was a friend. I always thought of him as that and I will always remember him as a friend. That is a big deal because friendship is an intimate bond between two people based upon mutual respect, sincere felicity and compassionate regard. Herb respected people. A hard working man who owned his own business and daily endeavored to do his best, Herb understood that others were also doing the same. He did not think his efforts to succeed were more significant that the efforts of others. Rather, from the core of his being, he understood that each of us does the best we can do. Herb was a friend true. I mean by this that Herb gave himself in trust and respect to others and expected the same in return. He would never demand the return of his friendship, a person worthy of it just knew that it was the mark of the bond which is sincere felicity. Herb had compassionate regard for others. His compassion was not something light and easily expressed. Rather, it was the deep human compassion of someone who had walked the path of life and knew of the dangers, the pitfalls and the perils. He knew of the joys of fulfillment and the pain of disappointment. He never spoke of these personal matters, but those who were his friends knew and understood that he too, as we all, had knowledge of joy and sorrow. I started this by saying that Herb was a friend and that I will always remember him as that. For me, it is my high honor to be able to say that about him and I believe he would say the same.
