We can remember Howie taking us out on speed boat rides on Lake Compounce. He was a good friend and the Godfather of our daughter, Trisha. We will miss him.

Howey was my Godfather. He prayed for me every day of my life. He was always close to my heart, and I will miss him. I rejoice that one day, we will be able to visit again, in Heaven, with the one who saves us all, Jesus. May the Holy Spirit comfort all those who mourn for the loss of Howey in their day to day lives.

What shows that a person value this gift of life? By the lagacy they leave behind. May those happy memories sustain the family and bring some comfort to your heart. And remember that God is a refuge and strength, a help that is readily to be found during distresses. My condolences to the family.
