Bruce and I will really miss Horrocks for all of his support for Bruce and his always helpfulness for me. He was a great friend but we know that he will be truly happy again being with his lifelong sweetheart, AnnaLou. We love you Horrocks!!
I grew up with Marion's children. I spent many days hanging out at their house. It was always such a fun place. I'm so sorry for the loss of their father. But now he can again be with his wonderful wife.
