So sorry to hear of Herbie's passing.  I not only went to school with Herbie but he was also friends with my brother Michael Platt who was also deceased in 2012.  Herb was also a friend to me smiling and always stopping to say hello when he saw me in the halls at Memorial Hospital / Brooks Rehab where I worked for 28 years.  My prayers and sympathy goes out to his family. God Bless.
