All of the Horgans send their sincere sympathy and love. Mr. Carney was a dear friend to our father and family. We thoroughly enjoyed his sharing of memories and stories of South Boston, the Strandways and our Dad. May he rest in peace. He will surely be greeted warmly by many of his fellow Strandways in Heaven.

Alice, Kevin, Brian and Tom
Its hard to explain the loss we feel, Herb was always part of the Feeley family, I especially enjoyed talking to Herb about sports and of course trying to come up with a hard sports trivia questions to test memories.
