I am compiling a collection of photos of Howard to add to the book he was writing on his life that I intend to finish. If you have any photos that you feel would be of interest to others and the family, please send them to me at the Texas address. If you would like to contact me, my number is 972-898-9990.
I would like to thank Bob & Lillian Wall, Chuck & Gena Norris and everyone who kept the encouragement, love and support coming for myself and my Howard throughout this entire journey. I would not have missed a minute of time with this wonderful man. He was a blessing to me and all who knew him. He will be with us always.
