I was truly saddened to hear about Howards passing...but relieved that he is finally at peace and suffers no longer. I have enjoyed knowing him, he was quite a guy...my family and I enjoyed playing cards with him and my Aunt Virginia. So good natured and just truly a pleasure to be around...I know they are all up in heaven getting ready for another big card game....my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Know that God is aware of the tears you are shedding. (Psalm 56:18) He will soon do what is said at Acts 24:15, which promises us of a resurrection of our loved ones. May that bring you hope. Take comfort in your good memories and allow your family and loving friends to help you through this difficult time.
