Jeff, Tim and Mrs. Hertz,
I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Hertz's passing. I was glad that he and Dad were able to reconnect at Hanover Hall.
Dementia is a terrible disease to watch a loved one go through.
Many thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I am so so sorry for this loss of life to all his surviving relatives, but especially for his surviving wife, & his 2 grandchildren & their wives! I did meet him several times & felt that he was a very loving, kind, & sincere person who loved his family very, very much! Dementia is so very hard to live with & I know that he is now in heaven with no pain or dementia! May he RIP!
