Don and Family,
I am lifting up prayers for all of you. Though I did not know your father, my dad, Charlie Horton talked about Velton and all the good times they had together. Some of the stories sounded like tall tales but I can always remember the laughter brought on by those yarns. Be assured the wonderful memories will keep him alive in the hearts of those who loved him. Daddy has been dead for ten years now and not a day goes by that I don't think of him and laugh about some fond memory. Peace and blessings, Julia Horton Impink
