I used to work at the service station years ago for Henry and June. They was a great couple ,and so easy to work for. Mrs . Horn ( June ) would fix lunch and bring it to Henry and I , she would stay and visit while we ate. Like I said GREAT COUPLE. She will be missed by everyone who knew her I would bet Henry was waiting at the gate waiting for her, they are together again ,after all these years.
