I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Don's passing. He always had a way of making every one around him smile and gave some of the best bear hugs around. Sending love to all of my family.❤

I was sister in law to Donnie's brother Dave. Donnie was so kind to come when Dave passed suddenly in 1997. He was so kind and supportive to our family at such a sad time.

I have known the Hornick family since his father was our minister in Plymouth, In. His father married me in 1966.
Our two families shared many fun times. I was fortunate to see Jay and Margaret one time when they were in AZ.
He was a wonderful fun loving person. I have many wonderful memories of the entire Hornick family. I am sending love and prayers to all of them. He will be greatly missed.

So very sorry to hear about Jay's passing. Doug & I remember one very hot summer day at our very first church event 32 years ago, Jay was one of the first person's to come up to our family and make us feel welcome and a part of the group! Jay was always a dear friend and a strong pillar of the church he loved so very much. He will truly be missed by everyone who knew and loved him!

I met Jay at Adrian College when he first started dating my college roommate, Margaret Huddleston. Margaret liked him right away - and so did I. Margaret and I had been friends all through high school and Jay just fit right in. I was dating my future husband who would come every weekend. He and Jay hit it off and, along with our other dear friends, Jan and Vern, we were inseparable. We stood up in each others weddings, had our babies together, and were family. Although, as the years passed, we didnt see each other often, our love and friendship only grew and strengthened. When we did get together, it was as though we had just seen each other yesterday. Although I am unable to be there in person, my heart is with you all.
