My sincere condolences Howell family. I know this is a difficult time for the family and I pray God continues to comfort the family during this time of bereavement. May the many loving and cherished of Phillip continue to comfort his family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Isaiah 25:8 :He (GOD) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." May you all continue to have calming and pleasant thoughts during this time.

I extend my condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Phillip Howell. I first met Mr. Howell when I became active with the Aiken Branch NAACP as a teenager. I was inspired by his activism and entertained by his sense of humor and wit. He was a joy to be around and every interaction we had was memorable. Through his work with the NAACP, he became a true ally in the fight against racism, discrimination, and equality. He did as Christ taught us to “take up your cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24). Our society would be a lot better if more chose to fight for each other as he did for us. Thank you for all you’ve done Mr. Howell. I will miss you and hope to see you in the hereafter.

To The Family, Please Accept My Heartfelt Condolences. Truly the loss of a loved one is most difficult. Please find comfort in the promise our. most loving Heavenly Father Jehovah God gives us in Revelation 21:4”And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Yes, We can look forward to a time soon to come when all suffering including death will be done away with forever.”
