To the family of Bob Horn: Pat Rankin, Al Donovan, Linda Donovan and I are all so sorry we missed the notice of Bob's passing and services. I speak for all of us when I say that we all loved Bob and respected him for his love of family.
God's blessing, Tim Donovan

Pat Rankin and her children send their love and caring. Pat remembers all the fun the Horn cousins had on holidays and summers with the picnics at Gardner Lake and Christmas Eves at Grandma Horn's house.
Pat Rankin along with Mike and Susan Rankin, Melody and Joe Gatti.

I remember a Christmas when Tim, Bob and I were down at Bob's home in Gardner playing basketball outside in short sleeve shirts. My condolences to his family. Alan Donovan

I remember playing bridge with Bob, Pat , and Tim at Pat's house on Christmas Eve. He sure was a great bridge player. My sincere best wishes to all of Bob's family. Linda Donovan (Tim's wife)
