Not sure what to say?

Francesca & family,
May your reflections of times with Howard bring comfort to you on this first anniversary.
Steve & Mary Anderson

Dear Francesca, It's hard to believe that Howard has been gone for a year. He was a wonderful man and he left a most positive impact on everyone with whom he came in contact. IdaLee joins me in sending our love. Lou Hurvitz

Francessca I am so sorry to hear of Howard's passing. You are and will always be in my prayers.

Sorry to hear about Howard's passing. I was a classmate(GFHS Kilowatt-1964). I remember the pickup hockey games at the east side rink and dorm visits at our first year at the U(Also saw Leslie at the 24 hour library at Diehl Hall). Howard was always an upbeat guy that had a plan for everything.

Francesca and family, it pains us, deeply, to know what you're going through, a great man leaves a large empty space in your lives. We hope his memory will keep you moving forward and living each day knowing how he touched your hearts and left an everlasting impression. Very heartfelt sympathy to all. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Very sorry to hear about his passing. I have many fond memories. Deepest condolensces and prayers.

So sorry to hear about Howard's death. We worked together at MMIC in the good old days, and used to have some great times... doing crazy things.. including flying a kite with other IT people in South Dakota-- he has a spirit for living that I have never seen... He will be missed. Please accept my deepest sympathy... So very sorry for your loss, Francesca.

Rest in peace my friend.

Frankie & family, my heart felt condolences. It's not hard to imagine how special Howard must have been in your lives. I guess God knew that too and couldn't wait any longer.

Howard, I'm really going to missing you. Whether it was solving the worlds problems in the garage with beer in hand, plotting against our furry night time visitors, engineering an equipment fix, or practicing our lumberjack skills, I always enjoyed hanging around with you. Summers won't be the same without...
