We have so many wonderful memories of our friendship with Brother Howard! He touched our hearts; made us laugh, made us cry.
He shared his thoughts, dreams, poems, songs, talents, crafts, gifts, and prayer requests with us, but most of all, his love for his Lord and Savior!; simply, we loved him and he loved us! We will miss the long talks...until we all get Home!
