So sorry to hear of the loss of a wonderful lady. I had the pleasure to be in Mrs Howells company on a number of occasions and I can say that she was a super person with a great personality. She raised a great family and now it is time to look back on the many memories she provided to so many people . While mourning her loss it is also time to celebrate her great life . Rest In Peace
