Thank you, Frank. Sad news indeed. Ever since Shep's passing, I'd been thinking a lot of Herbert too, and wondering where he was and how he was coming along. A PH member who is also on FB (you may know Gina?) dug up some photos for me to see of Herbert, Shep, and a few other old PH'ers who I had never seen and it brought back many memories. I joined PH in Mar of 05, and immediately encountered, in the forum, (and on my poetry pages) the formidable force that was Herbert. I had my squabbles with him, but he was a dedicated poet and a sharp, often very funny, incisive thinker, who was always interesting to read and watch, particularly in the forum. A character, for sure. I'll miss him as well. -LP
You will note my new message wondering if it was Herbert and Allen... but Michael??! ! I am so sorry to hear this. I was fond of MIchael but for obvious reasons I cleared from this site. I am so sorry to hear this. S.
