Our thoughts and prayers are with you Herman and Karen and your children. It’s difficult to lose a parent even when we know God will take care of her. Our sympathy to you—Mark and Sandy Gant

My love and prayers go out to Great Aunt Mary and all her family. Growing up, I always remember the chuckle in her voice, great smile, and big hugs. And it always made my day when she and Uncle Joe would stop at Al's Oasis and ask to see me when I was working. Although the talk was short, I will always remember those moments. May God and Uncle Joe greet you with open arms and grant your family peace and comfort as you look over them. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. - Love, Tate Herman
