My thoughts and prayers go out to Howards family. I only knew him for a short time. Everytime we would meet he would bring a smile to my face just being around him. Howard was one heck a guy and always knew a joke or sound to make just to make you smile. May he rest in the good Lord's arms and be in his everylasting peace.
