"We lost our stepdad because he didn’t know that there was asbestos in the buildings he entered. If he had known there was asbestos, he would have taken the necessary steps to protect himself and would still be with us today. He dedicated the last two years of his life to trying to save others from suffering the same fate he did and we are determined to carry on Howard’s fight." -- Howard's Family
