Your father was an amazing man, he always had such kind and gentle words. We always enjoyed visiting and talking with him. We learned a lot from him, his party stories, to him walking out behind enemy lines. Keep those memories close to your heart and know that you always have us to lean on. We love you and your father with all our hearts
Love You!

I remember when Mr. Horner used to bring Grace in to get her hair done at the salon I worked at. He always brought a smile to my face no matter how stressful my day was. That was 15 years ago and I still have fond memories of Mr. Horner.

Amy and family,

I was saddened to hear today of your Grandpa's passing. You are all in my prayers. When you think about it, we met and became friends because of your Grandpa and Grandma Horner! I remember when you visited him from Virginia and how excited the neighborhood girls were when you moved here too. I hope your fond memories bring you comfort at this time.
