  1. Worked for Dr.Howell during the time Mabel Holton
    was out on sick leave — about 6 months. Nice
    place to work. Dr. Charles Howell came in one
    day and I was confused since he was wearing different clothes. Did not know about the twin
    factor at that time.

  2. Dr Howell was my surgeon for years. Great man! I need help again now so who took his place??? Thank you!
