    Howard was a good friend and a wonderful neighbor. He would do
    anything for you if he could. Always had kind way about him. Brenda
    and I would be setting on the porch and he would stop and say I’m
    going to the store do y’all need anything. I would go see him and have
    good talks about what going on in the neighborhood. When I would
    leave he always say if you need me call me. That was the kind of person
    he was. We will miss him dearly.
    Rest in peace ,
    Your friends
    JD and Brenda
