    To the Krattenmaker family and friends, Herm was a beloved figure at the St. George Tucker House in Colonial Williamsburg where we served together as volunteer hosts for more than a decade before health issues caught up with him. We shared many interests and got together regularly after he retired from CW service. I considered this good man a dear friend. I will miss him.
