I was so sad to see that Howard had passed. My memories of him are really from my childhood as my Dad, Don Witte and the Timm boys were cousins. As a young girl I remember attending a family reunion in Morristown when Barbie was just a beautiful young toddler. Having the same name, I was enamored with her and remember holding her hand walking about. That was a super fun day with tons of laughter by all. As Dad was older he really spent most of his time with Russ. Both Russ and Glen were in my parents wedding as was Glen's wife Wilda since she and Mom (Arline)were already friends. We moved to Washington state in 1958 and our family continued to keep in touch with the Timms Glen's family visited several times and Bill and Selma visited in 1968 or so and we had a grand time. I last saw Howard and Betty on a visit in the early 80's when I went and spent the day with Ralph and Evelyn Witte. While I really never maintained contact with you all my fondness for the Timms and the family memories spent in and around Warsaw/Morrisrtown have always held a cherished place in my heart. I look forward to another reunion with Howard someday in Glory. My best to you all. Love Barb

Howard was in my class at Morristown High School. He sat behind me in study hall. I recall sharing with him many times. He was dating Betty at that time. I recall her coming to visit at times. I got to know her well too. A specially kind, loving couple. They bought the White place. I recall Dad,Jesse White . selling gravel to Howard. He always trusted in Howard , he was an honest upright person who would always do things right. I also remember Mrs Bill Tim who was such a wonderful Íunday School teacher and was such a loving , kind person. I believe Bill was a good singer and I loved those old hymns when the men would sing those tenor parts so beautiful. I am sad to hear of the passing of Betty and also Howard. They were people who kept Morristown alive and well. God Bless the grandchildren ,who have loving ,memories of their Grandparents. They are with the Lord and we will join them at His return! Sincerely, Jean White Ludeman

We have so very many memories of your dad, Howard and of course also of your mom, Betty. Always enjoyed having dinner with them in Minnesota and also in Arizona when they came down to visit. Having been friends since we all first married, and we were living in Minnesota means we have shared lots of times watching the children grow and then followed their progress as adults. Actually Bud and Betty shared classes at good old FHS, and we all went to the Youth For Christ meetings. We send our sincere sympathy at this time of loss, but know that we all shall rejoice around the Throne some day UP YONDER. No doubt Betty will be playing the accompaniment while we all sing. Won't that be a glorious day!! Be sure that all your friends are thinking of you as you say so long to your dear parents, and grandparents. We will miss them, but memories are so great!!! We hold you in our prayers at this time. Bud and Barbara Simonson

Howard will be greatly missed by so many. I fondly recall my early years at the MN. Regular Baptist Camp and his advice on keeping up the ministry here at Bass Lake. His donation of gravel was greatly appreciated and his generous heart was seen often through his and Betty's gifts to the camp. Cindy and I recall spending a Sunday afternoon with them (sometime around 2003?) and we were encouraged by what we felt was a kindred spirit. Our sorrow is in the fact that he will be missed. Godly sorrow reminds us that although we miss him now, we know a day of reunion awaits (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:51-58).
