Growing up Uncle Howard raised me like a son. I was so fortunate to have him in my life. We were fishing buddies, hunting buddies, and most of all we were family. I will always love and miss you Uncle Howard.

When visiting Howard we would talk and at the same time look at a picture of a train. Love that picture it is one of a kind. He will say keep looking and see how many objects make that train.
