Killion, Howard Earl's Guestbook

I have known Howard and Ann since 1993 when I started working with Ann at Best Western in Liberty. My heart is breaking for Ann and her family. Howard was always the one to answer the phone when I called. I would tell him hi and tell him who I was and then he would holler for Ann. It was always the same and always made me giggle a little. I am here always and am thinking of his whole family and praying for everyone. Ann, I love you my friend. I am sending air hugs and as much love as ever.
