    I always enjoyed reading Howard's posts. He was certainly one of the good guys.

    Most Honourable Board Members,

    Lowly Qui Chang Trainer, once and still a poor excuse for a Trainer of Fine Animals, is devastated and mourns the passing of our Great Friend, Howard.

    My feeble brain recalls several of the conversations we shared while we Walked the Road to The Great Gathering. Howard was kind and good. Always willing to share a bit of his knowledge or a laugh. A kind man. A decent man. A good man.

    In conversations today with Other Great Friends two things kept being repeated about Howard; he had no ego and he was an honest man.

    Howard was an awesome Trialer. He loved the game and was truly as happy for the next person to win as he was when he won as long as he felt the field was level and, on those rare occasions he felt it might not have been, he was far to much of a Gentle Man to make a big deal out of it.

    If, when we pass, all they can say about us is that we only wanted the best for everyone involved and that we were honest in our approach to making our dreams come true...then...well...then we have lived a life to proud of...very proud.

    God Speed to you Howard Neimi. You left us too soon with shoes too large to fill and a standard not easily matched.

    I remain,

    Your Faithful Servant,

    Qui Chang Trainer

    You can judge a man by how he treats someone who can absolutely do him no good. Howard treated people well that could offer him nothing.

    Prayers to Howard's friends, family, and dogs.

    Surely an honor that you re-appeared to pay your respects to Howard.

    Knowing Howard or not, the words spoken here have been enough to both bring tears to the cheeks of the strongest of men and give an example of what and how a person should be in life. Howard obviously lived his life "right".

Have many a time like others Emailed Howard and gracious as ever with my questions he patiently answered them. RIP Howard. I will miss your comments. You will be sorrily missed by this community. Condolences to his family and close friends. Very sad!
