Jill, I am so sorry to hear about Howard. I tried to reach you but have not succeeded. I did get hold of Janet and she was supposed to get back with me. Love to you and your family.
Praying for strength for Howard’s family and friends as he was such a special person. His kindness and gentle manner was truly a gift to all who knew him. Losing him so suddenly is extremely difficult as we were robbed of the opportunity to let him know just how special he was to so very many people. Rest in peace Buddy.
My heart aches for those of us that love Howard. He was one of a kind. He will be truly missed. Prayers for all who are suffering from this loss. I know he is living it up on a Harley. Our lunch rides will never be the same.
Sorry for the loss of my dear friend Howard. I will treasure all of the good times we had together. You will truly be missed. Howard and Pam Burnette
