Since we were always classmates, I am especially blessed with many fond and fun stories thanks to Howard's wonderful sense of humor. Having moved away after high school and college means that Howard will forever remain wonderfully young and young at heart to me. Praying for your loss while grieving my own loss, as well. What a blessing I knew him!
