    I was sorry to hear that Howard has entered eternal life. However, our faith tells us that this is our goal in life to rest in the presence of our Lord and God. This is the beauty for a faith filled person which Howard was and preached. His desire to share his faith speaks of who Howard was. We share our faith and thus rejoice knowing that Howard now rests in the arms of Jesus. Howard will be missed by his wife, Sharon, his children/family, his friends, his parish family and his extended family world wide. Rest in PEACE, Howard.
