Bev, Lorry & Family, Coleen & Family, So sorry for your loss. I have great memories of my sister and I spending time at your home during our childhood, preteen and teen years and what a kind, gentle, and patient man he was! Which to some people having the chaos of four girls running around probably could be overwhelming, but not Howard he was always calm, patient and smiling. He will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Peace of Christ be with you all at this difficult time.
