Herbert J. Bischoff,

You never got the chance to meet your one and only child, Herbert W. Bischoff, having been killed in the line of duty just one month before he was born. Regardless, your son, five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and 15 great-great-grandchildren (and counting) have not and will not ever forget you. ❤️️
