I can't believe it's been 7 years since you left us. I think about you all the time. You kept us all laughing all the time! I mean I hear the things you said which I swore you must have made up! I crack up all over again! I will never forget -ever- your speech. Well performance, at Joyce DeLuca's farewell were a riot! We had sore stomachs & headaches from constant laughter. And what was even more funny was those folks that didn't get it were looking at us rolling wondeing what we were laughing at!
Even when someone asks my name, I smile inside and sing BA-BAY, BE-BEE, BI-BIDDYBY..... OR I CAN SAY B-104. I still tell Emge she looks BEACHY every time I see her! We talk about you all the time.

The one thing that we talk about the most is your true love for your wife! What we witnessed was the princess being swept
Off her feet by her Prince charming. You were always true, honest, and caring.

I still miss you Michael P Howe (III) RIP ALWAYS MY DEAR FRIEND.
