Annette and Family, I was so sorry to hear of Howard's passing. My mind immediately went back to the days when I was your floor inspector at Harrison and some of the good times we had. May he rest in piece!

Having a hard time getting over this. I learned a lot from you grandpa. I’ll always remember the times camping and digging the yard BY HAND to pour the concrete pad for the motorhome. So many memories I will ALWAYS CHERISH. I love you and I’m gonna miss you so much
