Sad new for sure, He will be missed. Prayers for all of the family and friends.
Hard to believe he won't be here on the forum....one of the most welcoming people I ever "met".

I saw this this morning and just haven't been able to come up with the words. Howard was one of the good guys. He will be missed.
"The thing I admire about the rat tail is that it takes commitment. It's not like one day you just decide you want one, you have to grow out that bad boy and you have to repeatedly convince the hairdresser to trust you because it's a great idea."
You can be proud of your life Howard you left a mark for all of us aspire to, God speed.
Sorry for you loss Mary.
Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.
I only knew Howard through RTF, but was always thrilled when he replied to one of my threads - usually to tease me about being single - which made it fun! Very sorry to hear, always wanted to meet him. Condolences to his family

Do you listen to God as well as your dog listens to you? Can God run "Blinds" with you?
I am still in disbelief and at lost for words.
RTF will not be the same with his absence.
I didn’t have to know the man in person to know what he was here. GENUINE…
RIP and thank you for taking the time to help others.
Mary, I am very sorry.
Benny who is only 3 years younger than him. What a loss.
I did not have the pleasure of knowing Howard in person, only knew of him through RTF.
He was a very genuinely nice guy who always had great insight & advice in the forums.
From my limited relationship with howard & reading the other posts, the retriever community has lost a great member too soon.
May your family find comfort in this difficult time & may you rest in peace Howard.
Gone, but never forgotten.
