    Howie, Dave and I went to SHS together and hung out a lot as kids. I’ve been in touch with him through Facebook the past few years.
    He was a wonderful guy and a generous friend. Nothing but smiles remembering Saturday morning wrestling at Howie and Dave’s. RIP old friend and condolences to Howie’s family.

    Sorry for your loss

  12. Dennis Mathewson on December 23, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
    Recently I lost my dear mother,
    and found great comfort in the
    words of Jesus at John 11:11-14,
    where he likens death to being
    asleep, and at John 5:28,29 –
    “All those in the memorial tombs
    will hear his voice and come out.”

    Although my upbringing was away from the family I still consider you my uncle. And you have never treated me anything other than a nephew and then a friend. You will be greatly missed.
