Because He Lives

Shared by Janice Ingram on June 26, 2016

I will never forget Howard.  Around Easter in 1975 I was the proud Mother of a newborn son. We were in church that Sunday and Howard was singing the song "Because He Lives" as Easter was approaching. He came down from the stage and picked up my sleeping baby boy and held him while singing that song.  "How sweet to hold a newborn baby and feel the love and joy he gives:" is a line from that famous song.  Adam slept as he sang.  He was such a gifted singer and such a dear man.  He will be greatly missed by all those who loved him and had the privilege of knowing him.  I can only imagine that today, He has taken his place in a heavenly choir knowing he is home at last.  We love you Howard and we will never forget you.
