I am a volunteer at Presbyterian Home and had many lunches with Mr Horton. He was a very loving man who in turn was loved by the workers and other residents. He would always smile when we talked about his earlier life. I enjoyed
very much our conversations and seeing the love he displayed to others.

I will miss him very much.
