Dear Howell Family,

Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So many lovely childhood memories.

I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Howell family. My first job was at Howells after I graduated high school. I had the opportunity to be part of the college student program, where I had a job waiting for me when I was home on breaks and over the summer. Having the opportunity to be part of that program made getting through college much easier. Not many students know they have a job that pays good, with good hours waiting for them at home. Mr. Howell I thank you for that opportunity.

I met George at my 1st Board Meeting of the National Paperbox Association.
New, young, and seated next to George, he promptly instructed me to listen & learn something!
Slightly intimidating with his stern look and bow tie, but then I got to know him! Very smart, kind and generous- A true Gentleman.
He was an Industry stalwart who garnered enormous respect and I feel privileged to have known the man!
My thoughts and prayers go to Katherine, Tom and the entire family.
