Dear Family,

I remember Dad and Mother taking me down to Jesse and Alta's for a visit during the time Howard was in basic training with the Marine Corps. The thing I remember was Jess or Alta mentioned that Howard was required to shine his shoes for three hours. I don't know if that was just one day or several. And, I remember Howard and Helen's wedding and the reception.

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Denney was my bus driver on RR#2. He was always so easy to talk to, meaning he listened to everyone and everything.
I am sorry I missed seeing the family. My parents were Don and Donna Temple who always had the highest respect for Howard.

God Bless

Larry Temple
