We’ve been friends for approximately 70 years. I’ve enjoyed all of our times together, including watching you play football, and you watching me play basketball, and all our times golfing and sharing visits with Joanne and Ruth Ann. You will be missed greatly. I look forward to seeing you again someday.
Forever in our hearts,
Doug Horlick and family
