I just found out about the passing of Horace through the Masonic Messenger. So sorry to hear this. We were in the Ninth Infantry Division, although in different companies, at Fort Riley and Vietnam at the same time. We always enjoyed stopping at the nursery and talking (and sometimes even buying something) to y'all. Horace told me at one of our military reunions in Los Vegas that we only lived twelve miles apart and had to go to Vegas to visit. He was a good man that will be missed by all who ever knew him.

We are so sad to hear the news about Horace. He and his family were friends of ours and our family while we were growing up in Turnerville. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all the family that you will have peace and comfort in your difficult loss.

I just learned of your terrible loss and wanted you to know that you and your family are in my heart and prayers. Horace was such a kind and friendly man, who was fortunate to share his life with you; and I know that his loss will be felt by many. I will be thinking of you and hoping that faith, friends, and family will help get you through this already difficult time.
