Glenda and family, You have our deepest sympathy. Hang onto the memories. We will always remember you guys when talking about the Bradmobile (that little BroncoII we bought from you guys/yes we named it). Didn't you have an accident with that vehicle when you went to a bowling tournament. We sure had some good times back when we all worked at the turkey plant in Altura. John still runs into Dale and Danny and Mika once in awhile Ester. Take care love John and Janet

Dear Glenda and family, So sorry to hear of your loss and still keep in mind where he is and who he is with. Heaven can never be compared with anything here on earth and of course Jesus can't either. I know exactly what your going through. God has given me strength and endurance to face each day alone so I continually pray and have my devotion each morning. I miss Howie like mad but try to keep busy and my boys and grandkids are just super. Sometimes I think they think I can't do anything myself anymore --like in the yard etc. I say my boys because they are right here but the girls call a couple of times a week and talking is a big part of healing. I hope some of this will help you in the coming weeks too. We won't be able to make the funeral as Andy has reserves and Joel is out of town with Wanda's. Andy wants to drop you a note as he and Brad had some long military talks and both he and Chris are cyclers too. We just talked about Brad about five days ago and that was about the Navy. How ironic is that. Take care and if you ever want to talk call me anytime. 715-855-8291 or I think you have my e-mail. Remember prayer. I could not have made it through the funeral without the Lord holding my hand. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Aunt Janet
