    So sorry to hear or Roy’s passing. He was a good friend for many years. He also worked for me & Jim for about 15 years mowing my yard and doing a lot of work to keep up the woods and make it look nice. He was a very hard worker. My prayers to all the family.

    Niles: Carolyn & I just read your father’s obituary. We all have such fond memories of our Washington Street neighbors. You may not even remember us as you’re younger than us. Jim lives in Phoenix. Carolyn & I both live in Lafayette although you husband (Roger Howe) are in Florida for the winter. If I remember correctly you had an aunt who helped care for your brother. It’s so nice your father was able to watch the Cubs win and also vote. I’m thankful we had just great neighbors. Becky Swan Howe (Parents Bob & Margaret Swan)

    Niles, you may or may not remember me my mom was Beverley Remaly and her mom was Vetha Leopard. I think we were cousins somewhere down the road. I do remember coming to your house and and your Mom and Dad. I worked at Mallory’s and think I knew your dad there. I am glad he had a long good life and he saw the Cubs win! Long story short I am sorry about your loss. Your dad seemed to be happy all the time.
