    We celebrate the long life of our friend Howard. We have known very few people as happy, as easy going, or so willing to help just about anyone in just about any circumstance. Edna used to babysit our youngest son and on those afternoons, Howard would come directly from work to join in. We used to commonly see the two of them in the public library where Howard would greet just about everyone, just as he had done when he was working at Piggly Wiggley. Was there anyone in town who didn’t know Howard? We doubt it. We are all better off because of the Howards of the world, people who make it a better place, one friend at a time.
