Our sincere sympathy to Berna and the Brace family. When I first met Herb, he and I were in the shop office, as it was long before Kreilkamp had built a separate office down below the shop in Allentown. Herb was a dispatcher and I was in maintenance. We sure enjoyed each other all these years. May God be with all of you! Sincerely Fred and Karen Hackbarth
