Hershel Toomim was a great friend and mentor. Over the years Hershel was always there to offer his advice (whether asked for or not). His friendship is something I will miss dearly. He was a unique individual that was always there to remind me to live life to the fullest. In one of our last conversations Hershel reminded me about how life can be fleeting, especially when you feel your work isn’t done.
He was very happy to have a second chance in life to make up for some of the things he may have missed out on in the first half of his life. He made it clear to me that I should never let my work overcome my involvement in my family life. He once told me to be sure to appreciate the joys of fatherhood – as you really only have one chance at it. Wise words from someone with plenty of life experience.
I am very happy I had the opportunity to call Hershel my friend and learn from such a wonderful person. Hershel truly cared about people. Hershel will be sorely missed. Rest in peace my friend.
