What a Sendoff!
Four Events. Four “Sold Out” Crowds
The events of the weekend of August 10 and 11 almost defy adjectives.  Below are selected comments from a few of those participating…

Thank you everyone for a fantastic evening. I know Dad really enjoyed himself.
– Windsor Hanger Western

I can’t thank everyone enough for bringing each of your unique voices, experiences and personalities to the event on Saturday night. I loved every purification roast! And Sunday was amazing! I was weeping during most of it…in a good way, Yona. That was incredibly special, beautiful and moving. That bald man will be missed.”
– George Fleming, Master of Ceremony for the “Howard Roast”

It was amazing! Utterly perfect. Brother George, we will miss you, big time, as you fly off to Mexico to live for the next year. Thank you for all for the time and energy you gave to make tonight an incredibly fun/funny/tender night for Howard. Praise Jesus!
– Claudia Sherry, Jubilee! Board

Lauren and Chris led several Celebrations when Howard was on sabbatical leave – All to standing ovations. Chris is an ordained Jubilee! minister who was the pastor of the largest Methodist Church in Louisiana until his retirement. Lauren, who is Howard’s niece, has been a Jubilant since she moved to Asheville in 1990 as a young teen.
