We miss you so much daddy. I am going to miss the phone conversations we would have every night just before bed time. You were always just a phone call away when we needed anything at all. You always made sure we were taken care of before you would take care of youself. We know you are in a better place and with your brother, mom and dad and all aunt/uncles.Just rest in peace knowing we will take good care of Justin and mom. Save us room, one day we will all be together again.. Love you.. Shannon Horn, August 30, 2010 I miss you so much papa.

I also remember Jerrell being one of the nicest and soft-spoken people I had ever encountered. I am so sorry for your loss, Aunt Perline; and to Shannon and your son, Justin, too. I know this must be an extremely difficult time for all of you. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
