    Howard, we will always remember your graciousness in showing us around your townhouse to see if we might be interested in moving into one of those models in Arboretum Park. The joy you had in living there and in being able to keep your model planes was beautiful to behold! May you rest in deserved peace!!!

    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, and death at any age is too soon. God knows the pain we experience when we lose our dear loved ones. He even views death as an enemy! (1 Corinthians 15:26) God will soon eliminate this enemy, and no one will have to deal with the pain it brings. May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:
