After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have to hold onto are the happy memories that we’ve shared with our loved ones who have passed. This is what keeps them alive in our hearts and in our minds. And they will continue to live on, through us.

All of us at the the DRC will truly miss Hermann. His presence in the boathouse was palpable, moreso than any other member. He was boisterous, outgoing, witty, easy-going, always willing to help and a true friend. For those of us who knew him, his laugh will resound in the rafters of the boathouse forever.Rest in peace my friend.

Brenda Lewellen Gaba says:

It is hard for me to believe that such an energetic, creative, big-hearted and alive person is no longer walking this earth. Without Hermann I would not be who I am today. I am so thankful that he was part of my life. He will always be in my heart. Good-bye, dear Hermann. Love to Ingrid, Linda, and Jochen.

HERMAN AND I ENJOYED SWAPPING PIGEON GERMAN. HE KNEW IT ALL AND I ONLY HAD A YEAR IN HIGHSCHOOL. HE LOVED TO TEASE ME ABOUT HOW I AMERICANIZED THE GERMAN WORDS. A GREAT GUY AND I SURELY MISS HIM, AS I AM SURE THAT YOU DO AS WELL.

I TRY MY BEST TO IMITATE HIM WHEN MUSEUM VISITORS FIRST ENTER THE MUSEUM BUT NO ONE CAN REPLACE IS JOVIAL BANTER AND PERSONALITY.

Linda Hall Bockelmann says:

My darling Hermann, you left a week ago but the loss and pain is coupled with love and joy that you are free and safe from all you suffered. It is just not fair that such an amazing mind, body and soul had to end this way. At the end, you heard me and kissed me, a precious moment for us. You were the best of times and then the worst. See you in heaven, knock twice my love. Linda

David Deutsch says:

You will be missed by all that ever knew you. tD96B6

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
