My deepest condolences to the Rohde family. Herbie and I grew up as neighbors, right around the block from each other. My father was a police of also and worked with Herb and always had the highest regard for him. May he rest now in gentle peace.

Dear Kathy and family, We are so sorry to hear of Herb's passing. We have always thought of him as one of the real "good guys" of this world and know you will miss him terribly. We are traveling and can't be with you but you can be sure that you and Herb will be in our prayers. God bless.
