I am so sorry to hear of your father, brother & friend who passed away. I am related way down the line. Bubba & Frances Horner were cousins to my father, Adair Harvin. You probably won't even know who I am but I remember Boots. There was a brother they called Rags, not sure which one he was. May God Bless each of you at this very trying time in your sorrow.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I worked with "Boots" at Pioneer (Olin) for all of my years at the plant. During our years together he was a very good kind friend. I will remember him in prayer.

A good heart has stopped beating and a good soul has ascended to heaven. After working with Boots for 37 years, I know he couldn’t be happier than to be reunited with DeeDee. I will miss my phone conversation with Boots and hearing his laugh.

Our condolences to the family!
