Howard,
When we think of a man who had so much compassion and love for others, we see your face. You spent so much of your life taking care of and helping family, friends and even sometimes those you barely knew. You gave of yourself so freely to help ease the suffering of others all the while you were suffering with health issues of your own. What a wonderful gift from God that you, along with your great sense of humor, were a part of our lives. It is His choice now that your suffering be ended. Although He has closed this chapter in our lives of spending time with you, He has opened a scrapbook in our minds blessed with beautiful memories. Be at peace now Sweet Man knowing you will be forever loved.
