Alton Howard has gone on to be with our Lord. This probably means nothing to most of you, but for those of who are third or fourth generation in the Church of Christ this is the loss of a man who represented much of our heritage since he was the editor of the "official" church of Christ hymnals. Growing up we used "Songs Of The Church" and then later as the times they were a changin, we moved onto "Songs of Faith and Praise" which was also edited by Alton Howard.
I only got the chance to meet Mr. Howard once, but his work certainly had an effect on my life.
Rest In Peace Mr. Howard!
