In loving memory of our dear son, brother, husband, father and friend Howard Lewis Lumpkin Jr. He never looked for praises and he was never the one to boast. His loved ones wanted him to stay a little longer, but Howard gave us his farewell toast. If we could have a lifetime wish and a dream that would come true; we would pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you. A thousand words can't bring you back, we know because we've already tried...Neither will a thousand tears, we know because we have already cried. Howard left behind our broken hearts and happy memories too. We never wanted memories, we only wanted you. This man of God will be missed by all those who loved him dearly.
