  1. Too many years have passed since we last spoke but our endearing love and care for you remains as though we were never apart. You played an integral part in my wedding and placed a picture of your beloved canine at the foot of my bed when I had undergone lung surgery. Condolences to your family and loved ones. Rest in peace my friend – your tour of duty is complete.

  2. Howard was a partner, on and off, down in the old STLPD 3d district, on Lynch Street, back in the late 60’s. Despite a jovial manor on the job, he was really serious about the work, and I never had to worry about my back, when Howard was around. He did his job well and always seemed to care a lot about his family. I’m sure he’ll be missed. My condolence’s to his family.
