|Let the memory of Howard be with us forever|
"hAving Howard in our lives from the time Terry was born and having
Him close my when Bill was overseas was always a comfort. we went
Through several love interests, etc. Howard spent several vacations
With us - him being so close to Bill. Bill and Terry were able to visit
With in DC and I'm glad of that. He is now with his brothers and
Sisters. have a drink with them all, Howard! you will be missed."
"When I was 19 I lived with Howard for the summer between my Freshman and Sophomore years at college. What an odd and magical pair we made! We had so much fun together. Howard was always up for a movie date, trips to Japantown for "noodoos", or a road trip up or down the coast.
My favorite memory of all is our trip to Santa Cruz and its boardwalk amusement park. He loved the wooden roller coaster so much (so did I), so we road it over and over, getting off one trip and going right back to the end of the line for another round.
Howard was so generous of spirit. I miss him."
"Howard was "an adopted big brother" and dear to our family since 1959. He called me "Kid sister,"
He taught me to drive when I was 16 and was nonplussed even when I
drove up onto the concrete island in the middle of the intersection at Bay and Van Ness in San Francisco.
It was a treat to go with him to Chinatown to have Saturday morning breakfast and "jook" with his big family.
I always felt his loyalty, generosity, and love.
"We are sad to hear of Uncle Howard's passing earlier this month. When I think back to the times with him here in S.F., it was clearly evident that he loved the Young /Lee family. He made the best attempts to be in the Bay Area for the family gatherings, traveling all the way here from Washington D.C. He chose to live in Washington D.C. so that he will not be a burden to anyone. Plus all the good services he will receive from living there.
Another remembrance is that he really loved his godson, Felton. I remember his encouraging words to Felton, to keep trying and to do your best at work.
Although Uncle Howard is no longer here, he joins all our loved ones that have gone before us.
Till we meet again Uncle Howard,
Love, Alice & Brian"
"Uncle Howard is a person I admired, he is proud of his family, it does not matter how distance you are, he treat you like a brother, close friend and just full of Aloha for his family and country, I will miss him, Aloha Uncle Howard......."
Have a suggestion for us?
