Alison Freebairn-Smith September 15, 2014 at 10:17 am/Reply What a beautiful story — he sounds like he was really an angel for your family. Some of my mom’s friends were my angels, too. I suspect that we were angels for them, too. 🙂 Kelly September 15, 2014 at 12:08 pm/Reply Such a beautiful story, Susan. Thanks for sharing it. I’m not particularly metaphysical, but I’d say Herman was a living angel for sure. Deborah Tutnauer September 15, 2014 at 6:22 pm/Reply What a lovely story you shared Susan.
