In memoriam: Howard Verman

We are tremendously saddened by the passing of our good friend and long-time KidSafe Board member, Howard Verman. Howard was our longest-serving Board member (since August 2003!), past Board President, and most notably co-Chaired our annual Yard Sale fundraiser for many years, bringing his dedication, hard work, leadership, humor and even silliness, to make the event a success each year.
