    WE ARE SO SORRY TO HEAR OF THE PASSING OF HOWARD. HOWARD WAS A FAVORITE UNCLE OF MINE. AND I AM SORRY THAT I DIDNT GET TO SPEND ANY TIME WITH HIM IN MY ADULT LIFE. I DO HAVE A LOT OF MEMORIES OF HIM, PLAYING MUSIC WITH HIS MOM, CLARA. HOWARD WOULD PLAY THE SPOONS AND GRANDMA WOULD PLAY THE MOUTH ORGAN AND MY MOM WOULD DO SOME HUMMING. IT WAS A GREAT TIME GROWING UP AROUND THAT. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL OF THE KIDS AND GRANDKIDS. ITS A SAD DAY FOR ALL

    Oh My~~I send my sympathies to you all. I met and did Howard’s haircut at the Estates the last while and enjoyed him so much. His brother in law, Ordeen, was married to my hubby’s cousin, Merilyn. I knew we were farmers at heart :) and he was a fine gentleman~~always worried he had paid me. They call it the greatest generation and it was and is. I have been at the hospital with my mom who has double pneumonia and more and stayed with her 3 days so I did not know until tonight about this~~I had to cancel last Friday when I had his name on my list of gentlemen to do. Shucks. May God Bless you all. I think he was a really great guy! I guess we never know from week to week about us and or our loved ones.
