On behalf of the Braughton family. I would like to thank all of those who sent flowers and gifts to my Dads service. We really appreciate all the love and support from the community of preble county. There was so many that came out and watched the funeral procession, as Herschel made his last journey past Herschel's Auto Service. I would also like to thank all the Towing Companies, and Police Departments that lend their time to help with the procession. My Dad would be so proud of his family,customers and friends for all their loyalty and dedication that they gave him for 55 years in the Auto and Mechanic Business. Love The Braughton Family
