    Howie-I know you must be in a better place with Mr. Gunther and Knobby Walsh and crew. I never saw you without a smile on your face. You and Ginny always so seemed to enjoy life. I am sure that Wendy and Erik gave you such great joy. I loved babysitting for them. The Yacht Club won’t be the same without you. I wish prayers and peace for your family and everlasting joy for you! Thanks for everything….
