I learned quite a bit from Howard while he worked on his BizTalk HL7 book. He ultimately asked me to be the technical reviewer which gave me additional exposure to the whole process. Forever grateful. Rest in peace Howard and thank you.

I "met" Howard online in Spring of 2013 when I was looking for someone to teach us a software I had been tasked to learn. Howard said he was working a contract job but gave me the ok to stay in touch and ask him questions. That was his first mistake--I asked him questions almost daily. Howard's patience allowed me to make progress but when he finished his contract he said he was going to "be in the area" (which was funny because I was working in Rockford) and he was interested in seeing more about our project in person. He came and I met him in person, and before he left my company had offered him a contract working with him. Eventually he brought in his son Mark, and I got to know them both both professionally and personally. I stayed in touch with Howard ever since then and he became a trusted friend above all else. I eventually left the position in Rockford and continued working as a developer specializing in the software he helped me learn. I owe my current career to Howard, but will miss him most as my friend. He was a special guy who encouraged me to reach the success I've enjoyed since meeting him, and he will never be forgotten.
