Dear Connie,

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed knowing Howard (and you of course); his periodic phone calls to update our portfolio over the years were always informative and fun! We often talked about raising kids and the challenges therein!
Please know that we are thinking of you. We know that Howard was experiencing several health issues along the way and realized you too, must have faced some very emotional moments.
We hope this finds you surrounded by family and friends for continued strength.

Harry and Patti

I am so sorry to hear about Howard. When I opened your letter I was speachless which, as you well know, is not an easy thing for an attorney.
My deepest condolences to you and Kyle. Please take care, and I'll hope to catch up with you soon.

I was very sad to hear of Howard's passing. My mother kept Cathy and I informed of his illness and your tireless efforts to help him through.
I have always appreciated the personal attention that I have received and the friendship that you have had with my parents.
I will be thinking of you and your family to send you courage as you heal with this loss.

Hey Connie,
I was sorry to hear about Howard. I really enjoyed my time with him at games and practice. He was a good man, and like me, was very lucky to be able to spend alot of time with Kyle.
We think of both you and Kyle alot. You are an incedible person and Kyle is a great young man.
Love, Dan

I am so sorry for Howard's passing. I wish I was close enough to give you a big hug, and let you talk about your life. There is no way I can understand what you have been going through. Nor is there any way to be much help making it better. You are, and have been in my thoughts. Your feelings have to be on a roller coaster. Do not expect to get back to your old self on a timetable. Some days will be OK and then you might suddenly be sad, but you will find a "new" normal at some point. Remember the happy times and don't force yourself. There are alot of us who care and are pulling for you. I remain, Kathie
