    To The Howard Family:
    I am praying that God will grant you the strength you need to face this sad occasion, and that He will give you comfort and healing for the loss of your loved one. For God has called home another faithful saint.
    Mother Howard was like my second mom. She was so affectionate and sincere. There were many times we would talk on the phone reflecting on the love of family, wisdom, scripture and my love for her “sweet potato jacks” so delicious! I’m going to miss them and those heartfelt conversations we shared.
    May God continue to bless and strengthen the family. Also, if I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

    To The Howard Family,
    We have known Sis Howard for man, many years.
    She was just like a “big sister” to me. Sis always had
    kind words of encouragement and wisdom to give.
    Most of all, she was a blessing from God to my Mother. She always made sure that my Mother got to church and back home safely. She always had something to offer.
    Sis Howard was one of God’s humble angels!
    She will be greatly missed.
    May the peace of God compress you, and my His
    loving arms comfort you.
    The Hall family
