I am sorry for your loss. I only found out yesterday, 1/23, of L.F.'s passing or I would have come to the funeral. My Dad, W.F. Hornsby was L.F.'s older nephew. He passed away in Nov. 2012, only a few weeks from turning 92. When L.F. was at the Baptist home with my Dad, I enjoyed visiting with him and talking about family history and Clay County. Dad enjoyed especially talking to him about UK Wildcats & exchanging war stories. Two great men...now sharing stories above. My son, Eric, went to school with L.F.'s grandson, Matt. May you find comfort in the Lord during this difficult time, my prayers are with each of you.

Pops, you were my funny little old man! I will never forget the times we spent talking about the Hornsby family tree or our Navy stories, not to mention our "hunkering down"! You will be greatly missed and I love you!
