|Well Howard ... I haven't been around so much lately as I was in the old days, but I have such fond memories of the many photos and discussions we shared.
You were one of the earliest core members,an outstanding photographer,and a valued critic and friend to many of us.
You always took the time to share your excellent knowledge,and you were always honest and straight up.
It was sad to read of all your troubles,and my heart goes out to you.
We had the odd disagreement here and there,but like good friends,we always worked through them and stuck together.
I'm sure all the people who really knew you here over the years have nothing but the utmos respect for you,as a friend and a photographer.
I hope we see you somewhere around,even if its only in National Geographic.
You will be missed here on Trek Nature,and I'm sure those who knew you all wish you the very best. Go well my friend.
