"There are so many joyous memories of Howard.  He was always cheerful, and his outspokeness was a great part of his charm.  It was a delight to be in his company.  And I love the way he gave everyone a nickname.  He made everyone feel special.  I will truly miss him.  (Until we meet again...

"What an impact both he and Ruth made on my life... I know he was a grandpa to many of us and certainly to me.  I'll always remember his wisecracks from the stage and his true love for all of us.  He helped my parents during a difficult time and thereby gave me so many great memories...and soon one day many more...  My prayers and heart go out to all of you..."
