Our family has known Herb for many years. My father, Richard Lada, worked side by side with Herb at the Detroit Tank Plant in Warren for many years as they were both carpenters. I also worked at the plant as well as my brother Kim, we knew Herb through my dad. My husband, Pete Losier and I began attending Cornerstone Baptist Church in 2014 and were pleased to connect with Herb again. We were in the same Adult Bible Fellowship class with Herb and shared the Word together. Herb knew the Word of God and is a born-again believer. We will see him again in the New Jerusalem. I can only imagine how his face lit up when he heard 'Well done, good and faithful servant' from the Lord. Herb, you will be missed! Love, Leslie Losier
