Rick...THANKS for posting this! Howard IS a great guy. He recognized me from the forum picture several years ago and we became instant friends. He IS talented in many ways but his true gift is the unselfish ability to understand people and what is important to them. He never asks for anything...he only gives!
I have stayed in touch with Mrs. Simon as time and circumstance has allowed. She needs our support as much as he does. Think what it must be like for her to see him carried away in an ambulance and not even be allowed to come to his hospital to see him. This has been a true ordeal for them both!
Our family, and several of the Mississippi shooters and a few from Tennessee who have had the great pleasure of meeting Howard have joined in prayers for the entire Simon family, doctors and support staff.
He is the kind of a guy that we just don't need to be without!!
Your prayers will be most appreciated.
