Regrettably, I did not know Mr. Ball, but I read his tribute to Albert Payson Terhune recently. What a beautifully written, evokative, lyrical piece. He made his memories live, and that is a great talent!

Guy and Patti, I can't begin to put into words what Pop meant to Ruth and I. He knew me my whole life, a second father even more so after Dad was killed. Pop is and will be missed He was one of the last connections I had to my Dad. I loved him very much my thoughts and prayers are with you both. Say hi to Dad for me Pop!!!

To Howard's family and friends, my sincere condolences. Howard gave me a job as a theater and music critic and feature writer at Suburban Trends in the early 1970s. He was a wonderful mentor and friend. God speed, Howard. You will be missed.

To the family and friends of Howard. He did not know me nor did I know him, however, I feel like I did know him and his family and friends through his weekly article in the Trends. I will truly miss reading it. RIP Howard

To Howard's friends and family: I did not know him personally, but I feel I did with his weekly column in the Trends. I will truly miss reading that every week and may the family know that he touched many lives that he did not even know.

Dear Guy, Patti and Stephanie, please accept my condolences.

Howard, your Mom Diane and you guys were the best neighbors that anyone could have.

May you find comfort from your grief knowing Howard was a special man whose life touched many over many decades in a most postive and useful way.

I will always feel privileged to have known him. After all of my years away it was pure delight to discover and read Howard's "Bits and Pieces," commentary and remembrances.

Howard is especially knowledgeable about the Passaic River Valley flooding and the true region-wide scope of it's cause; a severe problem that his daughters have also thouroughly researched.

My name is Joanne Cole and I live in Colorado. I met Howard years ago when visiting Pompton Lakes, seeking information about Albert Payson Terhune. He was kind enough to take time out of his busy day to meet me at the public library and talk about his life and growing up in NJ. He wrote a beautiful story about our meeting and he fully understood my passion for Pompton Lakes. Howard was an amazing man and we send our most heartfelt condolences to his family & friends. He will be greatly missed.
