The Howlett Family :
So very sorry to hear of Nick’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and deepest condolences to all the Family . We knew Nick for many years when he came to Conception Harbour on his summer vacation with his beautiful wife Anna. We saw them on many occasions at dances and he so loved to dance, and we also visited them at their home and sang many songs . He was such a nice gentleman and was so well liked by all who knew him. We hope you find special comfort in the treasured memories you all hold close to your heart. R.I.P. Nick.. Forever Remembered
