To the family and friends of Horace. We became friends in school and that lasted all these years. Just spoke to him a couple weeks ago. Sad to know he is no longer among us. He was a real great person. Prayers to his family and friends for comfort; peace; at this time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear of Horace passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Always thought a lot of Horace and Mom enjoyed the time she had working with him at the Forest Service Office, not to mention y'all are a part of our family even though we don't see you much, we care about you all.

In Christian love,

Chet,Shane, and family. We were saddened to hear about Horace. He was a good person. We will never forget how he watched out for Mrs. Alexander and her house before and after her death. May God hold your family close through the difficult days ahead.
