    My heart broke this Valentine Day to learn of the passing of my beloved cousin, H.B. He certainly was one we all looked up to. There are many wonderful memories of Granddaddy Tisdale's farm - family gatherings in day gone bye. My condolences to his family and friends. May God bless you all. May H.B. rest in peace. Martha

    Dear family of HB, I'm so sorry for the loss of your father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother. His earthly life was one to aspire to, committed to family, faith, friendship, and service. Many of us looked up to him & were blessed by him. May God comfort you with His promises to walk with us through the valleys, the very presence of our loving Creator. (Psalm 23) HB has claimed that promise "Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. " We have blessed assurance- (I John 5:11-13) Love to you all, sweet cousins, From Ron & Tricia (Tisdale) Horning

    Our thoughts and prayers are with each family member. HB was the epitome of what a true servant in the Bible should be; always thinking of others and giving of his time and talents to his church and community. He'll be solely missed by everyone who had the distinct honor and privilege of knowing him. Most sincerely, Nancy & Everett
