    My heartfelt condolences to the Blake family. I will always remember his smiling face and the sound of him whistling as he walked the halls of the Chatsworth when he lived there. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a warm kind heart. He will be dearly missed by many.

    We were so sad to hear of Howie’s passing. He was an important part of our life when we were growing up.
    Our deepest sympathy to you all.

    Lovingly Remembered and Sadly Missed

    To the family of Howie. My Mom, Dot Stanley, used to live at the Chatsworth and was so fond of your Dad. I sat with them on many occasions to enjoy a meal and many laughs with him. I only just found out that your Dad passed in July. I was so sad to hear this. He was such a lovely man and so funny. I always enjoyed his humour. My Mom has dementia now and doesn’t remember too much about the Chatsworth any more. She lives at the Village at Mill Creek now. She’s in her little world and seems pretty happy. I’m happy though that she will never be aware of your Dad’s passing, because she loved him so, and it would destroy her to know he’s gone. My heart goes out to all of your family. I’m enclosing a picture of my Mom.
