Howard was a joy. He always had a joke or a good story to tell, he was always be in a good mood, and I always felt lighter and happier after being with him for a while. We'll miss him.
With love and hugs,
Howard was such a unique person who always shared his wisdom, wit and humor! When he spoke I would always find a "gem" in what he was sharing. My favorite "Howardism" is when he said "Cailin, it's an inside job!" How accurate he was! I will miss him and his great wisdom!! He certainly will live on in all of us who had the honor to know him!! Rest is peace, Howard!
