So grateful for the US Army Service of Claude David Horan, Jr for our great country (for which he participated in the protection thereof) and so inspiring to see the full fruitful life that he lived through his businesses, interests, and talents that he shared with others and his faith and service for/through his Savior. Now at last he can rest in the everlasting promised comfort and company of his Lord. Thank you Lord for men such as this.
