Daniel Howell was killed in a single car accident just days after celebrating his 17th birthday. The accident occured on Hwy 43 between Puckett & Pelahatchie, MS. He was texting and driving and not wearing a seatbelt. He always wore a seatbelt but for some reason that night he simply forgot. He was leaving his own birthday party around 10 PM that evening.  Daniel was a first string offensive lineman for a Championship Football Team and a first string catcher for his high school baseball team. He played guitar and loved music. He had recently re-dedicated his life to Christ. He had an off-beat sense of humor that people were drawn to. His death devestated and entire town and he has been remembered by so many. His Jerseys from Football and Baseball have been officially retired and still hang in the field house. The 2008 Football season was dedicated in his memory and they went to the state playoffs with his jersey hanging in the front of the bus.His teammates were his pall bearers for his funeral services. 50 young men carried him out of the church and walked behind him. There were over 500 people in attendance of his visitation and funeral. His family knew how special he was but the number of people that attended and were truly affected by the loss of Daniel showed us even more so how blessed we were to have him for the 17 years we had him. I was forever changed by Daniel and cannot wait to see his beautiful face again.
