I am so sorry for your loss. Don't know if you'll remember me but I am Ida & Carmine Silvestri's daughter Sue, living in Ct. now. My brother sent me the Obit notice and I do remember what a nice , gentle quiet man Howie was. I'm sure he will be missed by all. Your family is in my prayers. May he rest in peace. God bless you all. Love, Sue Cotela
