    I have so many great memories of Howard, but the simple ones come to mind the most. He was one of the most loving and kind people I’ve had the privilege of having in my life. There was always a hug and a kiss on the cheek, a warm smile, a pat on the...  more

    My earliest memories of Howard are of him fishing with my Papa and Uncle David. My favorite memory is knowing that every time I saw him, I knew I would be getting the biggest hug and a kiss on the forehead or cheek. That is something I will forever miss!
