    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

    Sandra
    ” May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead”

    Please accept my deepest condolences. I had the opportunity to work with Herb for 10 years and yes he was honest, had great integrity and was a pleasure to be around.
    The one thing I’ll remember is Herb always cared about the small contractor
    and made sure they were always taken care of.

    I remember Herb vividly from the days I worked at EECOL Electric. He was very hard working and I always used to try to make him laugh because he was always working so hard. I know of his work with with the Mustard Seed as I did some volunteer work there myself, thanks to Herb.

    It was very sad to read that he has passed. He will be missed by most of us who worked with him.

    Our deepest condolences to all the family of our friend Herb. We were roomates at the Rockyview Hospital and we were both released on the 19 May 2010.
    You made a lasting impression on me Herb, as you told me how full a life you had lived. You were so proud of your wife, children and grandchildren. We prayed together and you expressed such a profound love for the Lord and how you were looking forward to an early retirement from your pain and suffering. You brought the family together to explain your desire to move on and asked their permission to do so. When we left the Hospital I gave you a big hug and our last words were, see you in Paradise mi amigo! It was touching and now I have only your memory and will cherish our last days together. We will celebrate your life at 2:00 today.
    Love and Deepest Sympathy to all the family,
    Roy & Bernice Stewart.
