Not sure what to say?

I have so many wonderful memories of OLL and Father Hotard. Christmas Eve mass was my favorite. I will hold you in my heart, always. Rest in Peace.

God speed on your next journey, Monsignor Hotart.

God gave my dear friend Howard the gift of being able to draw closer to Our Loving Father, all of those who had the privilege to meet or work with him. His words of counsel and example made an unforgetable impression on everone. May God grant him unending happiness in His Presence.

Fr Hotards masses were beautiful. You truly felt that you were in Gods presence when you attended his masses. His Christmas and Easter masses were his favorites and it showed. Paul and Gaye Lucker


I will miss Father Hotard, yet I am glad to see one of His servants receive the honor of sitting at His side.
Father was an awesome man and a true servant of God. I grew up around Father, as he was friends with my paternal grandparents. I remember many weekends at Father's house, playing with Johann the dachshund. After Gramps died in 1986, we did not see Father as much, but he made sure to stay in touch.
When Granny died in 2008, Father Hotard made sure to stop by St. Louis King...

In our prayers
