My sincerest sympathies on hearing of Howard's passing. You may not remember me, it's probably over 50 years since we saw each other. I'm Dennis Griffin, Howard's childhood friend since birth. Howard's dad and my father, Bill Griffin were also life long friends. I went into military service when Howie was in college and sadly we grew apart. But the fondest memories of us growing up together in the 50's and 60's remain clearly etched in my mind.They were the best of times. Please accept my condolences and be well yourself.

Ronnie, Bob and I were so sorry to hear of Howard’s passing. We met him
when he brought Eclipse to visit my father, Arthur Gross, in Patchogue.
We have become friends ever since, really looking forward to our catch ups
at Starbucks on Friday morning while you were playing tennis. We had many laughs and lots of fun talking about Golden Retrievers! We will
miss him! He was a wonderful, compassionate person with a huge heart
and a wonderful sense of humor! With much sympathy, Linda and Bob
