I was extremely saddened to hear about this. Horace was a good man. I worked for him for a few summers. I look back and smile at the various adventures we had. So sorry for your loss.

Hi sweetheart I love and miss you so much. I know you are not in any more pain and suffering anymore. I hated to see you suffer so much and know that you are walking those streets of gold with our Jesus, and also with your mom and sister. I love you so much and my heart is broken into a million pieces. But we will be together in the by and by.

I remember Horace having his welding shop out beside his house. Friends of mine worked for him, Jeff and Jason Morrison. He would have me help out some during the summer. I always got a good laugh before the day was over. Was not only a good man, a good welder, and small business owner. He helped insure the welding trade was stocked with experience and grew men from boys along the way. I’ve often passed by and just blow the horn. Horace will be missed.
