I'm sorry that the Howard family have lost one of their siblings. The Howards are good, good, people. I am also sorry for Brenda. Mike has known the Dillards since he was a child, and I have known them for many years. Ferrell Dillard gave Mike the nickname of Tailgate when Ferrell worked at Mike's grandfather's store, C.G. Bramlet's JohnDeere -Purina.

I am saddened to hear of Jack's death. We were neighbors with the Howards before Dad sold our farm. My older siblings went to school with Jack. We younger siblings went to school with Mary Jane and Ellen. I have wonderful memories of playing at the Howard's during the summer. Jack and the older boys were always working.

Praying for God's comfort during this time for all the family.
