    Miia and I were so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of your grandfather. Although I never met Howard the loss has hit me hard….it was only 3 days ago I burried my grandmother in Texas after her 85 years of life. I know what you and your family are going through, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you while you celebrate his life and mourn the loss.
