Aunt Alice, Milt and I just saw Uncle Sams obituary today. What a wonderful man and role model for your sons. I remember him fondly. Once, after he’d recovered from a stroke, he was at my folks house, after taking care of the yard. He said “ Tracy you know what your Mother and I are doing.” I said no, he smiled and replied “ we’re having a drooling contest!” It was hilarious! I hope you are doing well.
Love and prayers, Milt and Tracy Hubartt

Sam was an intimidating force. He wasn’t mean, didn’t curse or flail like a maniac as we often see in today’s parenting. Stern and respectful was his approach and as the “fifth son” in the Horn pecking order I learned that steadfastness and consistency in his approach with the top four wild, good for nothing crazed sons made them what they are today. Suppose Ma Horn had a hand in keeping the old man from strangling them boys. Just in case you guys need to know...I was the favorite! Love you all. Godspeed Sam, your journey continues.
