Memorial means a great deal to me
December 21, 2017
I am not a resident of South Lake Tahoe but I have been a frequent visitor as my sister and brother in law, Melissa and Ernie Bornstein, are.
I'm writing in response to the article about the Tahoe Children's Memorial. My son, Timothy Richard Herman, has his name on that beautiful memorial. You see, he was a true Tahoe kid. He loved visiting Aunt Mel and Uncle Ernie and when he died of an undetected tumor on his heart in 1994, we all felt the loss in so many ways, not least of which was the empty seat in the car on the drive up to Tahoe and around the table and at the beach.
When the memorial was placed on that corner, my sister made sure his name was on it. Whenever I visit, I always try to stop and pay tribute to him and to all of our children gone way too soon.
Thank you to the "angels" who make it their mission to decorate for Christmas. My sister makes sure I get a copy of the article and a picture, which is on my fridge.
I just wanted to acknowledge how much this means to me.
