|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

|Howard was the most gentle generous, sweetest man! We will miss him so much. He and Becky were a huge part of our church family. We love you Howard and we will meet again and you will be able to visit and talk with us and have a good time and be pain free dear friend.|
|Becky i am so sorry for your loss i know you will
miss him, prayers for you and the family.|
|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. |
