It’s sadly for us, but lucky for him, God was listening and answered his prayers. Now he is no longer in pain, and is flying free.

I am so sorry to hear that Howard has passed away. My siblings and I (Granier family) also went to school with the Kreamer and Martinez kids. We shared many memories riding to and from school on the bus. My husband and I send our condolences to the Kreamer family on your loss. We will be praying for the repose of his soul.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Howard. My deepest sympathy to the family and loved ones of Howard. We were neighbors, friends as well as cousins. We walked the lane in Darrow by our houses to and from the bus stop,
Went to the same school. He comes from a large family and was surrounded by the love of his mother and siblings. I will never forget you, RIP.

Uncle Howard was always one to make people pull up a chair, eat, drink and be merry. He was by far one of the best cooks and story tellers around. I will always remember the Christmas and Mardi Gras parades spent with him and his family. (Hope you are resting in peace with your daughter, sister, brothers and parents. Xoxo)
