You have my deepest condolences in your loss of Howard. He seemed like a very great man. Having a sense of humor is a wonderful gift to make other people laugh. And he accomplished many things in his short life. Death is truly an enemy to all of us and it always comes too soon, however our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah will soon reunite us with our lost loved ones as promised in the Bible Book of Revelation in chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. The scriptures may bring you much comfort.
Our condolences to the Wolff family.
Our prayers are with the fine family. Peggy and I enjoyed the times spent in your place in Tigerton. The food and drinks were awesome. Dennis and Peggy Miller
