Carol Howell Memorial

Plans are underway for a memorial to honor Dan Howell's wife, Carol. After Dan consulted with Fred Garmon, Executive Director of People for Care and Learning, he and the family settled on what they believe is a fitting permanent memorial for Carol in Cambodia.

Dan stated: “As you know, Carol fell in love with the Cambodian children, especially the ‘garbage dump’ kids in Phnom Penh. PCL has recently completed a new facility called ‘Emmanuel Village.’ Its purpose is to rescue these children from the garbage dump. However, the facility does not have a place for the children to play. Since play is an essential part of childhood and since Carol had such a lively and playful spirit, we thought it fitting to build the ‘Carol Howell Memorial Playground.’ It will be a safe place where children’s laughter is heard and their lives are mentored for Christ. As you know, Carol had an infectious laugh, and I know she would be thrilled to see the joy this playground provides for laughing children.”

“Her desire was to return to Cambodia next January. Through this memorial and a marker to display her name, she will always be with them. All contributions to this memorial will be appreciated by her family.” Tax deductible checks can be made out to Keith Street Ministries, 4000 Keith Street, Cleveland, TN 37312 and marked for the “Carol Howell Memorial.”
