There were letters from numerous friends and family who had benefited from the late Howard's giving nature. Many of the financial contributions were discreetly given to her hairdresser's brother, a cousin, a friend with no expectation of thanks or repayment "When she died, we got a letter from the cleaning lady," Howard said. "My mother, it turned out, had helped her out on a lot of occasions. . . . She also would show up to clean and my mother would say, 'Never mind the cleaning today,' and they would sit and talk all day." Howard wanted to celebrate the life of a woman who would reject the purchase of a beautiful dress with the words, "Do you know what that kind of money can do for UNICEF?" She knew the event would have to be as special as her mother was. It had to inspire others to be more giving, but not in a "fancy-schmancy" way. The result was an offbeat celebration this month planned by Howard with the help of her husband, Richard C. Bloom, that included crafts such as clay pot decoration, makeup consultations and psychic readings. Thirty-four guests attended the afternoon party that was supplemented lavishly with community donations, including flowers and pastries. "My whole point of this day was to communicate to people about sharing and that it doesn't have to be perfect, and that we're all creators in our own lives," Howard said.

'. it By Jenny Vogt Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Linda Burd Howard wishes you were reading a story about her mother right now. Since her mother, Marilyn B. Howard, died 10 months ajja un-da Howard has dedicated all her efforts to continuing her mother's legacy of giving. Most reoenth-, that meant a unique event in her Boca Raton home that raised mere than $10,000 for charity. "My mother was an extraordinary woman," said Howard, 51, a clinical psychologist with practices in Boca Raton and New York. "She was a philanthropist who also gave by listening, encouraging and empowering others." Howard, a former photographic and runway model, said she feels compelled to tell her mother's story in hopes that others will be inspired to emulate her generous spirit. "The oddest thing is I was never like this before," said Howard who has a ready laugh. "It was as if I felt her goodness coming into me." She also said she promised her mother she would carry on her work after she died. It was a vow aimed at easing her mother's exit out of this world. Marilyn Howard died of breast cancer on May 29, 1997, cradled in her only daughter's arms. Despite many debilitating health problems, her last year was filled with laughter as her daughter and son, Robert Howard of Fort Lauderdale, gathered their families near for continual feasting and partying. "We had the best last year," Howard said. "It was wonderful." Fran Pierce of Scarsdale, N.Y., a longtime friend to both Howards, said she always considered Marilyn Howard a second mother. "She never understood what an example she was to others," said Pierce, who is quick to point out that Linda Howard is evolving in the same direction. Although she always knew her mother was generous to others, Howard said it was not until after The American Lung Association ; . offers the Lung Card and the 1998 Golf Privilege Card, which offers , - reduced rates on golf courses in Florida and the Southern United States.
