Mr. Herberg was one of the nicest people I ever had the privilege to know. I was very fortunate to have known him most of my life.
He was always smiling, always had a kind word and could tell great stories. Mike, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I will miss Frank so very much. He always appeared with a smile on his face and many a good story to tell. He was a loved member of my weekly discussion group and quickly became one of my favorite people! It's sad to know that I won't be seeing him again.

The world has lost a beautiful soul and one of its brightest lights. There are truly no adequate words to fully describe the incredible man that Frank was. He made an indelible mark on so many hearts, treating all he met with genuine kindness, compassion, and sincere interest. Frank was such a dear, loyal, and loving friend to my dad...celebrating the good times and offering support and guidance in the hard times. He treated me as his own...always sharing his wisdom, offering praise, and encouraging me. Never was he without a warm smile and a gentle hug. I will be forever grateful, and feel eternally blessed, for the gift of Frank's presence in my life. Godspeed, Frank...you will always be remembered and deeply loved.
