It was a pleasure working with him as a colleague at St George Secondary. I always found him to be a quiet, intellectual and problem solver. Sincere condolences to Cynthia, Lisa and his family on behalf of myself and the entire Rhynd family. May he rest in peace.

We are thankful to our Heavenly Father for the Life of brother Mc Howard and his service and commitment to the work of his Master. He reminded us of the virtues of gentleness and told us by demonstration that passion can be controlled. His two “diplomatic journeys” to Guyana in querulous times displayed his character and confirmed his suitability for the role. The grace of God had made him into a competent helper. Although he did not gain all he desired, he showed the way to peaceful resolution of matters and for this we will be thankful.
The saints in Barbados would doubtlessly miss his smiles and genuine laughter; Campers his kindness in service; and we all the lovely kind of man he had become. May the comfort of our Heavenly Father be known by his dear wife, Cynthia and daughter Lisa and also by all for whom he had been in many roles along their journey.

Cynthia, Lisa, Cammie and the other family members:

Our hearts are with you and we wish we could be there in person. However circumstances prevent us from being there, but we are praying for you all. In spite of the sense of personal loss, we can rejoice in the fact that Mac is in the presence of the Lord whom he so faithfully served, and away from the pain and suffering we often experience in these bodies of clay. May you continue to experience the comfort of the One who is the God of all comfort.
