I am so honored to have known Homer. He fought the good fight. He inspired me. I am saddened by his passing and will miss seeing him. I praise and thank God that Homer was placed in my path! He made me laugh often with his great sense of humor. I will not be able to attend the memorial service, but send my thoughts and prayers to his wife and family.
