Tammy & Mark, Wanda and family,
So many memories of your dad over all the years, first living across the street in Steinersville, Broken Arrow Saddle Club, horse shows, square dancing and of course your mom also. Howard was a good man and you can be proud of him in so many ways. Jim and Sandy Sisson.
