Karen's brother, Howard Wellman, Jr. died on this date in 1990. He was brilliant and had a photographic memory. He died from cancer but in the year between discovering the cancer and his dying, Howie came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as his savior. It was so typical of him to research a subject and get to know everything that can be known about it. He knew he was dying and his sister Cindy Boyenga was at his side. He kept asking her how close he was to dying, not asking out of fear but out of his desire for knowledge. He went out praying to God and singing the praise of God. I think he was 59 years old when he died. We miss him and think of him often.
