News about former Iles House Board Member William Howarth dated 12/12/17 from an e-mail sent to Dick Hart: "I received info from Anne, Will's wife that he had a stroke last week. Go to Facebook and find the page for Dana Hand to see her message. For those without Facebook, Will had a stroke last week and is in the hospital.
