    I am saddened and I will miss my uncle here on earth but, I look forward to the joy I will have when we are together again at His right hand!

    I have some fond memories of Howard: His singing tenor and leading singing at Shiner, our fishing trips to Canada, and his corny, homespun, but clean jokes that I still remember and retell on occasion (they must have not been so corny after all). Goodbye Howard
