Howard Fisher - February 3 2010

Howard, goodbye for now........

How could the life of a vibrant young man, 6 foot 5 inches, always with a big smile, and well liked and respected by students, staff and faculty be so suddenly taken away? This, and other questions, are no doubt in the minds of many in the Montreat community.

Life is fragile - death is a certainty (the exception being a rapture but that is for another post) - one day, no matter who you are, young or old, regardless of your background, your physical being will cease to exist. In Howard's case, in a paradoxical way, while we are deeply saddened by his passing away (it is still hard for us to accept that he is gone - we no longer can see Howard play goalie or see him on campus), we take comfort and rejoice that he is with his Savior, Jesus Christ. Howard's departure is untimely but he leaves his legacy and his impact in the lives he affected. What a joy it is to know this fine young man. I miss you Howard......
