My memories of Mr. Horstman are from my childhood. I played with his children, Larry and Karen, and was pretty much at the Horstman house everyday until we moved. He would drive me to church with his family. Mr. Horstman had an influence on me growing up. I remember he loved to take pictures. Looking back now as an adult.. he had one of the most caring loving souls I've ever encountered.
RIP Mr. Horstman. I have never, and will never forget you.
