Not sure what to say?

Lynn, I just found out about your loss. I'm so very sorry and I know how difficult it is. I will keep you in my prayers.

I always remember my Uncle Horsty being at every birthday and Holiday growing up until we moved out of state. He was very giving and could always make us laugh. I wish I would have kept in touch more. We will miss you!

Sorry to hear about Horst. He was a good guy.

God bless you all,
Rob and Kim Armitage

From sports to the military to welding and being the best mentor and father I could be. Just the way you were. You were and always will be my hero, my mentor, my best friend. Don't worry about me or the family and those around us. You taught me well.I am strong enough to handle what comes our way just like...
