Appreciation For Les Howell By Tony Howell

Dad – I remember most your kind, gentle manner when I was a young boy. It broke my heart every time you went away, I really missed you so much. I couldn't have asked for a nicer Father. Now you've gone - but not from our hearts.

What a wonderful man you were. Kind and generous to all you met.
Always an enthusiastic word of encouragement. Positive attitude, a lover of life.
Even while dying, such bravery, humour and sweetness.
A true gentleman, loved by so many.

Yet you are our Father! How blessed are we, your four sons!
Your gifts will not be wasted, for the kindness you showed us, we will try and pass on to others.

God must be so proud of you, for you are surely one of His dear ones.
God bless you Dad, and thank you so much for everything.
We'll always miss you dear Dad, that will never go.
We'll always love you Dad, more than we can show.
