  1. What’s strange, I think of this guy when I see Justin Herbert play and their name isn’t spelled the same. I’m sorry that this nasty virus took his pops.

  2. My sympathies go out to the Hebert family. Sympathies also to the families of those who would downvote condolences to the Heberts.

  3. I saw that a WWII vet lost his life to Covid, as well. I really hope young people are out there taking this threat seriously.
