If any of you knew Howard you would agree that he is suffering each and every day having to live with the loss of his friends. Howard is not just some dead beat; he is a very kind and compassionate man with heart of gold. He was a hard working business man with a family, who did not intentionally set off that day to hurt anyone. He almost lost his life and will never be the same again. Howard is not a drunk as you make him out to be, he planned a nice day out on the Lake that turned into a terrible tragedy for all. He has family too, don't you think they are suffering also. If the whole story was out in the open you'd have second thoughts on what really happened. This could have happened to any one that par takes in a drink. Howard is truly remorseful, itÂ’s sad none of his words were captured. What do you think more time in jail will do for him but break his soul.
