|Howard, Howard, Howard, my dear friend.
This is a sad day with terrible news indeed. You would surely and sorely be missed by many Trekkies and of course by one of your biggest "fans"...me.
I sincerely hope and believe there are outcomes and solutions to your personal reasons mentioned. I for one will honestly and earnestly pray for you, your wife, and your loved ones. I am not going to drag out this goodbye, it is difficult enough as it is, but I just want to say THANK YOU for every thing you meant for me here on TrekNature and even off the site as well. I have learned so much from you and I have enjoyed and cherished your friendship over the past 14 months.
Go well my friend and may the peace of Christ be with you wherever you go and in whatever you do.
Sincerely and with warmest regards.
PS. I just hope you don't go as far as to remove your valuable photos from the site. I am sure it would still educate and inspire many TN members in years to come. And anyhow, I still have that hope that says we will still see more from you in the distant future.
