Sorry for your loss. I will be praying for your family. I always had a great time visiting with Herman and Debra on the road. This is a great loss to Covenant.

Would like to offer my sympathies to Debbie and the rest of the Peinhardt family on the passing of Herman. Honored to have known him and been able to work with him at Covenant Transport.

So sorry for this loss. Mr. Peinhardt was a great man and I enjoyed being his fleet manager at Covenant. He made my job easy and was always so kind. He will be missed. Praying for Mrs. Peinhardt and the rest of the family.
