My darling husband it has been almost 4 months since the Lord called you home. The emptiness that I feel is almost unbearable I miss you so much. The love that we had was a once-in-a-lifetime love as you told me many times how that I was the love of your life. We were each other's lives we were soulmates. The 13 years that we had together were absolutely wonderful. I will forever love and miss you till the Lord calls me home to be with you again. Our love will live forever.

Sandra, Wayne, and Lynn: I am so sorry about the passing of your dad. Howard was always so kind to me and my little brother. My dad absolutely adored him as did my mom. I have been through what you guys are going through now, but I cannot imagine losing a parent that I actually got to know as an adult. I remember your dad pulling us behind his truck all around the neighborhood in the winters on innertubes that he and dad would get for us. You guys, and your parents, made my childhood better. Again, I am so sorry for your loss! You all are in my thoughts and prayers! Love ya, Donna Gail

Howard was my uncle. I only got to see him on special occasions because we were raised in another state. He always was the first to come hug us and let us know how much we were loved. We were city people and he enjoyed picking on us. He gave me a duck one year to take home. It was a goose. Was the meanest animal we ever owned bit everyone. Lol. He just laughed forever about that. He worked so hard. Once he had to back our travel traitor into its spot. He was good at truck driving. He enjoyed it. I will miss him. One thing is firm and thats what I believe...the Bible says there will be a ressurection. (John 5:28 and 29). And (Revelation 21:3 and 4). I will see him again and I hope all of you will too. John 17:3.
