Condolences to the family of Howard. I enjoyed all his stories. He told me of things I may have not otherwise have known. All his sayings from him living in "chabungy land" to him reading his "carboard" getting on his "soapbox" and all that "claptrap." And of course "the back 40" and Turtle Creek.

Robert Allen

Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. Howard was a great man and a good Mason. I truly valued his insight and quick wit. No matter what the subject he always had a bit of wisdom that caused me to pause and think. I pray that God will shine his light on his family at this dark hour. God Bless Robert Allen
