Our sincere sympathy and condolences in the loss of your loved one, Howard. We have many fond memories of Howard and Lill, especially in our school days, and growing up in St. Philip’s. We shared many a game of bowling and shared lots of laughter and fun. It was good times. And now, Howard has been called to his eternal home in the safe and loving arms of Christ Jesus, our Lord. “May his rest be in peace, and his dwelling place be in the Paradise of God.” Amen. +
With our Love and Blessing always.
John and Cynthia.
