Our sympathy and prayers go out to the Glasscock family. Truly this world is a little less, without his spirit in it. Howard was a wonderful human being and he will be missed very much by those of us who visit the Farmer's Market in Louisburg.

It just isn't quite the same without Howard there with his succulent squash, tender green beans, sweet potatoes and other garden bounty. No one could grow a German Johnson tomato like Howard could- and boy, were they ever the best tomatoes you ever put in your mouth!

Most of all we miss his sharing- a story or joke, debating what is going on in our area and our world, or comparing garden growing strategies.

To us Howard was a salt-of-the-Earth kind of man, direct, kind and friendly, who provided nourishment of body, spirit and mind, and a sense of community. He was wonderful with children who came to the Market, and I know it was his wish that they would learn to value the freshness of locally grown foods and the joy and pride of gardening.

The far-reaching community he was a part of, and the family he leaves behind will surely miss him greatly.

I hope the hosts of Heaven enjoy his German Johnson tomatoes as much as we always had- for surely Heaven has gardens for those of us for whom soil in the hands feeds the soul.
