    My Brother, Jim, when Lynne first told me about you so many years ago, I was thrilled that she had found such a man. I gained a Brother and never once looked back. You two have blessed us with 4 Nephews and 1 Niece that are pure joy. I’m going to miss your laugh and your smile. Till we meet again…….

    Though it’s been years since, for each time I had the pleasure of being with the Howard family, I knew I was in cherishing company. I’ve always admired, and been inspired by, this great family. To know that Jim has created such an amazing legacy is comforting, even through all that hurts regarding those he left behind. What a blessed thing the Howard family is. I pray for ease and wellness to everyone in their mourning and wish for warmth and goodness in each memory you’ll feel. Thank you for being such an incredible example of life, love and family.

    I hadn’t seen Jimmy since 1992, I think. My mother’s funeral. His mother and mine were sisters. I grew up with all of the Howard kids. We all took day trips together, had sleepovers together…..we were ALWAYS together. Jimmy was ALWAYS smiling, happy and joking. I’m so sorry for all of your losses.
