Lori, MarLee, and Kathy:

My thoughts are with you at this time. I will always remember the time I spent with your dad at his home and especially our road trips to the races in Oswego. Your dad loved you all so much and did all he could do for you. I will always cherish my time spent with him and your family.

Thinking of you,
Neil Waltz

My prayers are with you and your families. Howard was a sweet guy. Howard was my Father's (William Kennedy) roommate. He was very good to my Father. I'm sure their both in heaven having fun. God bless you all.
