Somewhere out there a Spike Milligan recording plays as we hear the distinctive sound of Herb's voice, cracking wise and being the life of the party. We'll miss you Herb.

Herb was an amazingly funny man and we had many laughs together. He was a good friend that I have known for many years. He will be missed!
