I was fortunate to have spent time with Mrs. Horner growing up in Uvalde. I loved when I would go over to her house with my grandmother or my mom and listen to her tell stories. I always found her so fascinating and loved exploring her home. This time of year she would always have a special Halloween treat for me waiting in the kitchen because we never used the front door. I can’t remember how this tradition started but to this day I can remember clearly going over every Haloween. She was a wonderful, one of a kind woman. I wish I could attend her service and express my condolences in person. I am so sorry for your loss. - Shelby McCasland
