We are all thinking of you in your time of sorrow. We are very sorry that we did not find out in enough time to come and pay our respects.
Whenever I think of Howard I think of him playing horseshoes at Family Reunions. He was always so friendly and cheerful. He always demonstrated so much love for his family. We will greatly miss him. Again, our Thoughts and Prayers are with you all.
