Prayers to the family of our dear friend "Howie"! I didn't know you by your legal name but recognized your picture. I wish you were hear so we could tell you how much we appreciate everything that you always did for us. We loved you dearly as a friend and you will be impossible to replace. We had a lot of fun times together when Carnegie had its casino. One July 4th, we never will forget because we could never have done it without our dear friend, Howie.
