    Hi, My name is Mark Howard and I am writing this on behalf of my Dad, Walter Dee Howard Jr. We are so sorry to hear about your loss of J.D. but we celebrate his entrance into his heavenly home. From what I am told my Dad and J.D. were 1st cousins. I think my grandfather (Walter Dee Howard Sr.) and J.D.’s mom were brother and sister. We are from the branch of Howard’s around Clovis, NM but currently live in Dalhart.
    Blessings to your family,
    Mark Howard
