From Camille Anthony Haney

From the day he was born, my little brother, Howard, was special.  Cute, smart, loud, curious and charming.  What’s not to love?  His sisters, Melanie, Jill and I have a long list:  Mischievous, daring, loud, sports-minded, teachers-pet, fast-on-the-pedal, gambler.  Who could ask for more?

We girls all agreed he was special and MOM LOVED HIM BEST. 
Actually we all did.  He was always there to help, encourage, praise, congratulate, cook for us, scold, love us and, as a bonus, picked us to have a lovely sister in law, Karen, for us to have a life long friend.  Who could ask for more?

At the end of the day, when all is said and done, MOM WAS RIGHT, and she loved him best.  Howard was special.  And he was THE BEST!
