Dear Mrs. Howe,
it can't be easy at this time to know the one you loved for all these years has moved on. However, the joy you have in the happy memories with Mr. Howe and remembering them when you look at your children will give you the strength you need now.

So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He was not only a pillar of our community but also a very humble, amiable, and funny person. What he tolerated as we were growing up is legendary. He always had a story to tell that no doubt had a life lesson embedded in it somewhere. He will truly be missed at the fire dept and in our community. Our condolences to entire Howe family!
