Sarah was a 1 helpmate to her husband and wonderf ul mother to her children; they were both hardworking individuals. Herb h ad more mechanical ability than his brothers. Whether or not he feared hei ghts, it was he who was always delegated to do the jobs which required cli mbing to high spots. Not only was he devoted to his own family, he was mo re than generous with others as well. He was particularly fond of hors es and often showed his teams at the fall fairs, sometimes winning prize s; a large prize-winning cup held an honored position in their home as tes timony. Often he played the violin at dances or at home, accompanied on t he piano by his wife and later on by other members of their family. Indus trious and enterprising, his farming standards were high. They were affil iated with the Harrington United Church where he and his family were loy al members. Worthy of esteem in the community, Herb and Sarah were favora bly regarded by relatives and neighbors alike."
