One thing I'll always remember about Br. Horst is he never got angry, never said a swear word, never was abusive to his wonderful wife or children in any way in all the time I knew him. He was a hard working man who went to work everyday and provided for his family even though he had very poor eyesight. He never complained about his disability. Not one time. He loved to sing in church and knew almost all the songs in the church hymnals by memory. He was a Godly man who honored Jesus Christ in all he said and did. I'm honored to know we were friends.
