From Melissa Stewart (T-2):
When Marianne Kane (Bartin) (T-2), Tommy Thompson and Dorothy Aird (T-3)
and I lived in Ankara, Howie was a frequent visitor and joined us many
times for special occasions. He also hosted us in his apartment. He had
a great sense of humor and we all enjoyed knowing him. When we returned
to the States we tried to find him, but could never track him down.
I am glad to know about him, but am sorry that we didn't see him when we
returned to the states.
