|Dot met Herb for the first time on June 26, 1945. She and Sis were standing outside of Whelan's Drug Store on that evening, waiting for Sunny. Two guys, one Herb and one Walter (“Doots”as he pronouced it) began talking to the girls. Dot and Herb made a date for the very next day.
Herb was about 5'11", dark, with sort of wavy hair, and had a very nice personality, according to Dot.
