June 16th 2009 was not a good day. My former brother in law Vincent Howarth 73 years old from Greenfield Park passed away that day. On the very same day Wanda Howarth his niece only 48 years old also passed away. Vincent was retired and had moved to Etobicoke about ten years ago while Wanda was a teacher in Mississauga. Both funeral services took place on June 20th which had us scrambling from one funeral home to the other. Vincent was quite a joker and was always cheerful despite his heart condition. The church service for Wanda was packed with many of her students and former students in attendance. Both will be sadly missed. Obituaries attached.
