Lee and family, We are so sorry to read about your loss. Howard was a great guy. Although we have knot seen each other in quite sometime, I often thought of you two wondering what or where you guys were. May he rest well and enjoy his next journey. Take care of yourself my friend.

Sending my deepest sympathies and thoughts in this very difficult time following the passing of Howard. He was a giant amongst men and will be greatly missed by all that knew him. I will never forget his infectious smile. Fair winds and following seas always, Howard.

Howard was an amazing man, filled with love and care for his fellow. I am deeply saddened and extend my sympathy to Lee and to Howie's family and friends. This is a tremendous loss I am sure, but he left his heart's light on us all and I am grateful for that, always.

Howard was a kind, gentle spirit who touched many lives with his love, encouragement, wisdom and his infectious smile. I feel blessed and grateful to have shared some special times with Howie and his family. Sympathy to my lovely Lee and all the family members who have lost such a wonderful man. Howard leaves behind a beautiful legacy of a life lived with purpose, values, friendship, love, and respect. God speed my friend xo.
