Uncle Howard was a great role model for me as I grew up. His steady disposition, even temper, hard work ethic, indomitable spirit, subtle wit and gentle nature were traits I both admired and tried to emulate, but never came even close to matching. He and his wife, Rose, were kindred spirits who dedicated themselves to the service of others. His passing leaves a void and he'll remain an influence upon many of us for many long years to come. Rest in peace, Howard! Your legacy lives on!
