Tributes: Was Always Happy and Had a Contagious Smile
"Drew was always happy and had a contagious smile. He loved to snuggle especially with his Mommy and Daddy. He was rarely upset unless he was hungry (From Obituary)."
Betsy Tausch said, "What a sweet and happy boy. My heartfelt sympathies are with you as are my prayers. He truly was a joyful child (One of 80 entries in Drew's Guest Book at Legacy.com)."Links about Drew Howell:
