LanceyHoward 1/20/1954 to 11/2/2013
11/3/2013 | LeonardFMason

Posted on 11/03/2013 3:36:11 PM PST by LeonardFMason

With much sadness I announce the loss of my oldest brother. "LanceyHoward". A heart attack was the cause. Words can hardly express the heartache this has caused our/his family. FreeRepublic was part of the "air" he breathed. His last contribution was a Comment the very day he died on Nagging Women, something his dear wife never was. Please pray for her, his three children, and two grandchildren. Thank you all the pleasure FreeRepublic brought him.

Very sorry to hear this news. LH and I had a private conversation recently about the state or our military in which my son serves, and I always found him to be thoughtful and insightful.

Prayers for comfort for you and for the entire family.

We were speaking just two days ago... I love him... and now miss him. Lancey, we know you’ll be freeping from heaven.

And his birthday was right around now?

Very, very sad loss... but he’s still alive to me.. even if not on this plane.

If you mean FReeper birthday I think he was part of the 2000 election crowd.

Lancey and I got to be as close as most friends can be on FR without ever meeting. We corresponded frequently-—I sent him a copy of one of my books for his son. Sorry to hear this.

My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Your brother was a treasure here at FR—I always enjoyed his posts.

I now realize we shared the same exact date of birth.

I pray that our Lord give you His peace and comfort, the peace that passes all understanding, at this difficult time.

Gosh! So sorry to hear this. It's often hardest on the bearer.

I believe that through God, our fondest memories of those we love on the other side
will be but the beginnings of a paradise we can't even imagine.

Praying for LanceyHoward and His Family.

LanceyHoward? Oh no. Geeze.

Thanks for all the insight you showed in your posts, Lancey. I’ll miss you. You made me think and smile at the same time.
