Reader tributes

We were absolutely shocked to hear of Howard's untimely death. We knew Becky even before she met Howard, and when we met him for the first time we immediately saw the light he brought to her eyes.

We cherish that we still have him in our memories, our hearts and our prayers; his memory will be with us always.
