Hon. Sally Hne Howe
Dear Lord, if indeed I am Thine, if Thou art my sun and my song,
Say, why do I languish and pine, and why are my winters so long?
Oh, drive these dark clouds from my sky; Thy soul cheering presence
Restore; or take me unto Thee on high, where winters and clouds are no more.
The Howe and all related Families announce with profound sadness, the death in her 87th Year of Hon. Sally Hne Howe, former member of the House of Representatives for Maryland County (1971-1980).
