Dear Horace, you and I joined a family where neither one of us were readily accepted or quite fit in. Because of this, we formed a kind of comradeship. The main thing we always had in common is our love for Katelyn and Tyler. I will always be grateful that we got to reconnect in the last couple of months. I told you I loved you in church that day and you said "I love you too girl!" That pretty much sums it up. Rest in peace, thanks for being my friend. Until we meet again...
