Guilderland

GUILDERLAND — Howard O. Towle taught his two daughters the value of money and education — resources he lacked in his own childhood — while, through his hard work and compassion, he served as a model for generosity.

He died on Friday, Nov. 1, after a short illness.  He was 88.

A friend of mine knocked on our door and without waiting for an answer she opened the door and walked into the living room. Gayle had her Ihone in her hand and was laughing heartily. It was not surprising to see the phone because it is always with her.

To the Editor:

May I begin by referencing your editorial of Oct. 3, 2013, which began with a quotation by Margaret Mead: “ Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
