Hello Sherry!

George Howard was my grandfather, and some of the obituary as written is incorrect. I've corrected it as follows. You can check his wife's obituary [Nora Blanton Howard] to see that I've made the correct changes [Rosa Howard was not Rosa Webb when George died.]

I know the newspaper obituary has it the was it is currently written on the website, but I thought I would note the corrections for others who might not know the newspaper was wrong. It might be confusing for people in the future!

Thank you for posting everything! Geraldine Howard Bucsis
