    Herman. As an apprentice, I knew that you were a good Ironworker. I was kind of unsure about your rough exterior. I decided to pay more attention and as I got to know you better, I discovered a truly great guy with an incredible sense of humor. A good life lesson for me, thank you. Rest in peace.

    Hermann, you will be missed, especially on the 6th floor of 160. I will miss seeing you on your daily walks, and I always think of you when I see the roses beside the parking lot.
    Ursula, my deepest sympathies to you.
    Shirley
