On The Passing Of Harold Howrigan

"Harold and Anne are among our oldest and dearest friends. I told the family I will sorely miss him.

"In all the years we've known each other he never asked me for anything for himself but always told me of others who had needs.  His clear and constant voice for Vermont farmers helped so many in our state.  I'll always treasure a trip Marcelle and I took to Ireland with him -- he was so proud of his family's Irish heritage that he never stopped smiling throughout the visit.

"Marcelle and I always had him in our prayers during his illness and we both miss him.  We share his family's sorrow."
