    Very cool story. What an amazing story. So sweet they saved some of Herbie for Mr. Knights casket. Neat how they spent so much time together here on earth, they'll be eternally together. Neat to see all the funds raised by Herbie too. Very touching story.

    I fall in love with trees, too. It's so heartbreaking when one goes down... but, in this case, seems a couple of full lives were lived. :)
