Thanks to all of you on behalf of my family for your prayers and support during our time of sorrow.
Cousin Sonja and Family, We are so sorry that we could not be there with you in your time of sorrow, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God Bless and keep you!
Anytime I saw Howard he "always" had a smile, hug and a kiss on the cheek(in that order) for me! He was such a talented person but that came as no surprise given the very talented and wonderful family he has. To each of you I extend my deepest condolences for such a loss.
To the Pope family, (Kay, Pug, Ms. Sonya) My prayer is that God will give you the peace that you need at this time. The last time I saw Woodle was at dinner after the Ricky Dillard concert at Mt. Olive. We all had a blast. I still remember his smile. Please know that I am praying for each of you and I love you all.
Our prayers are with this family.
To Sonja and family:
Holding you close in thought and prayer as you walk through this time. Remember you're always in the Lord's care. God bless and keep you.
With love, your Cousin
No one can take away the pain and loss you must feel, but hopefully you can take comfort in the knowledge that your loved one is in the arms of God, and one day you'll be together again. May God bless the Freeman and Pope family during your their loss.

To my extended Family, Aunt Sonja, my deepest sympathy to you during this difficult time! Howard is in God's care now and what better care could you ever ask for him.

Im devastated in the lost of my dear friend in the music ministry... He was a awesome guitarist and never will be forgotten.. I will be praying for the pope family all the way through this time of trouble...
To the entire family, Kaye and Alvin in particular, I am so sorry for the untimely leaving of such a wonderful person. Howard was always a joy to see and perform with. It breaks my heart to even think about it for very long. However, we also know that he adored his family and left loving, fun memories for all to cherish. He will certainly be missed and my sympathies are with you.
To all my family....we will get through this with the help of the Lord."In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct our path" Love Sharon,Carol,Darrell, Aunt Eula and Uncle James and the entire Cobb Family!
