Memories

To the Schlie Family: Another piece of Morristown history has passed. I'll remember Herman as always having a smile on his face, and going someplace or doing something. He was never an idle man and was always contributing somewhere in the community. A dedicated working member of Legion Post 149, he was always in there pitching in. I can still see him working in that garage on some project, many times to create something for you kids to play on or with. I got to know your Mom and Dad through my Mom and will always cherish memories of them both. I hope in the days to come that all of the wonderful memories you share will bring smiles and laughter. With Deepest Sympathy, Cindy Packard

Memories

Our Deepest Sympathy & Prayers are sent to each and everyone one of you dear family. There are so many memories both good & bad of events & gatherings spent with the Schlie Family that I don't know where to start...or where they will end. So we will just go on, like the screen door that was never shut long enough---for us to get hollered at to close it. But there was that "Don't slam the ......" and it was open again. In the days to come it will be the little things that you will remember in those quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter, the devilish pranks of youth. It seems so hard right now but those memories will help push away some of the pain, and help you through the next phase that is ahead of us. The words & thoughts can't mend your heartache...but know there are many who care & share your loss...and we wish you comfort, peace & LOVE...

Memories

To the Schlie family, Morristown has lost a giving person. When ever there was an event going on or work to be done Herman was there. Many times going to the American Legion I could see him working in the kitchen, setting up or tearing down in the dining area, and marching in all those memorial days parades. My memories go back to even the old American Legion building. He made an example to you, his family, that there was much personal satisfaction in hard work. Being honored by the Dam Days committee to make both your father and mother grand marshals of the parade. How proud they both must have been. For you the family, your memories are numerous and will going on with each member of your family and in the future with many more family to come. Truly our little town has lost a mentor, but he has set passed on such a great example to all of what can be done with hard work and pride. God Bless you at this time. Put a smile on as you thing of your dad, grandfather, great grandfather, sibling and loved one.

Memories

To Dave, Lynda, and the entire Schlie family, This is a difficult time for each of you in an individual sense as well as the large family you are. From the obit I see a man who gave of himself to his family, his community (in many ways) and his country. He shared what he learned and he learned as he shared. I can't speak as if I knew the man but his legacy will be, what each of you he leaves behind, does with what he taught you, what he brought into your lives, and what your relationship with him made you become in your own lives. As you bid your father, brother, grandfather, great=grandfather, fellow vet, firefighter (and more) a difficult fearwell, remember it is only until you meet again. His physical presence will not be with you but he sure will be in many ways and at times when you least expect it but most desperately need it. Rest in peace Mr. Schlie and as I believe you will, watch down over this fine family of yours.
