Condolence & Memory Journal

We have known Howard for many years from seeing him at Dart Bowl Cafe and Jim's Restaurant. We always enjoyed visiting with him about politics because he always had something to say about everything. When he saw us reading the newspaper at Dart Bowl he would ask if there was anything good in the paper and then laugh. He also liked to talk about his trips to casino's with his sister which they were still doing until this year. We wish the family and friends the sincerest sympathy for your loss, Howard was a nice man and we enjoyed knowing him and visiting with him.
