    Will never forget the stories Alkie told me about he and my daddy back in their B&W days (70’s)… Loved him lots, and loved the fact he was Daddy’s (Joe Page, Died September 27, 1974) best buddy.
    Just holding on to the fact that we’ll get to see them again someday!
    A great man, and I will miss him very, very much!!

    Brianna, my heart and prayers go out to your family. I did not know Howard very well, but Brian loved and respected him, so he had to be a good man. He has been through so much these past two years. Please find peace and comfort in knowing that he is with Jesus and he has cancer no more. Big hugs to everyone.
