Messages of Condolence

  1. Dear Horvath Family,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. If there is anything we can do, please let us know.

    Chuck & Jan Snider

  2. Dearest Shirley and Family… I was deeply saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I know how much the two of you loved one another. My deepest condolences to your friends and family!

    Love, Kelly Keckler

  3. Shirley: One must always grasp onto memories at a time when life has temporarily halted. I remember when you two met and how both of you had the amazing ability to make each other laugh. I am grateful for a reunion gathering in November where we all shouted “hello Jim” into your cell phone in out best adolescent voices-and heard his laughter and saw your smile. Your husband, your children’s father, and your grandchildren’s grandfather what was, still remains in every memory you can grasp, every photograph you share and everytime you continue to speak his name. As I light a candle by one of my angels, please know you are all in my heart today and in the weeks ahead. Patricia and Darrell Krause

  4. I was out of town when I heard that Mr. Horvath passed away. I just wanted to let you know that my family’s thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.
