Guestbook

Howard was my phone buddy as we both worked for URS/AECOM. I assisted him with various administrative duties at his site location as we worked at different locations. He was a joy to talk to as we were going about our day to day business transactions. Last June I personally had a chance to meet Howard and he was just as spirited in person as he was in our phone conversations. He will surely be missed by his workers, co-workers and the management team. I send my heartfelt condolences to all his family, friends and loved one. May he rest in power!!

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

Rest in the arms of our Lord dear Howard, you were a sweet soul, and a beautiful friend. I will miss you

We are so thankful of the memories we just made last week with Howard & the rest of our ever-growing family. We were all blessed to have that last camping trip together with Howard & he gave such a heart warming speech about our loved ones that we had lost previously & we all knew that he loved his family unconditionally & was so happy to be camping at Longwood as his family have been doing for 50+ years. Howard is now with his dad, other family members & our Lord Jesus. I pray that through this tragedy Joy, Dale, Jonny, Josh & the rest of the family can find peace in his passing & know that God has a plan for us all in his time not ours. Even though we all werent able to be present for the services today & tomorrow, Howard knows how much we all love him & the family.

Howard was definitely one of the good guys. God speed and good hunting.
