Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for your loss, Howard was not only a great employee, but a dear friend. My wife and I will not forget when he took us to the buffet in Marion, his favorite place we thought. We had Chips Ahoy cookies ready for our next visit.
Unfortunately I just found out of his passing. He will be missed.

Mr. Davis was a kind, gentle and wonderful man. I got to visit a little with him a year ago and will always treasure that memory! I have wonderful memories from when he was my father-in-law. One memory in particular was when he was teaching me how to make country gravy. Mr. Davis told me the secret was to always stir it in only one direction. Even after finding out he was joshing me, I have to this day always stirred it in one direction! Rest in Peace Mr. Davis !
