  2. Mr. Howe was a good friend for the short time that I was honored to know him.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. You have my sincere condolences. I didn't know your husband all that much but working close to you for years and your live and support you gave me when I lost my baby Katelyn. This to me makes you family to me. My heart breaks for Rhonda. I know I've been away a long time but the day I saw you I still felt the closeness we had. If there is anything you need and I can do it please I'm just a call away. My love and prayer for you and your sweet family.

    Grandma Chloe was married to my Granddaddy (Poke) Norris when I was a child. I loved and kept a relationship with Grandma Chloe until her passing. I even had the privilege of meeting her husband Hal. Even though life has taken us all in different directions over the years, I have always kept my loving memories of Uncle Louie, Uncle Joey, and Aunt Karen.

    I love you all and send hugs and prayers during this difficult time. May God comfort your hearts and ease your pain.

    Much Love,
