my mom used to live with HB for 20 years, they had a whole lot of trouble in their relationship, but the one thing i can say about HB is he wouild help anyone who needed something, rest in peace HB
My father was a resident of the Veteran’s Home for 1 1/2 yrs – he passed away on 11/2/09. When I would go visit, my son Jordan (19 yrs old). would always go & talk to “HB”. He told me of all the guys there HB was his favorite. He would talk to him about the Korean War and the railroad. I’m very sorry for your loss.
