Letter: ‘Follow the Hersh example’

Mike Hersh
May 6, 2022

Thank you all who made the May 1 celebration of Mike Hersh’s life a perfect celebration of a life well lived.

I wish I had been able to visit with you all individually but, as you know, there were so many of us I could not.

You all made me realize how lucky I was to have lived 55 years with this fine human being and I will move forward with a positive attitude, hoping to make him proud of me.

As you know, Mike loved writing haikus and I will end this note with a haiku written by a dear friend:

Help others in need?

Follow the Hersh example

Volunteer your time.

With gratitude and love,

Char Hersh

Ashland
