As hard as it will be for the loved ones of “Red Fox” to depart without him, God our Heavenly Father promised to give peace that will surpass all of our understanding even in the midst of grief and sorrow. The hymnologist said it best... when he put pen to parchment writing.... “We’ll understand it better all by and by.”
The compassionate professionals at Horton’s Funeral Homes and Cremations are working around the clock to ensure that the Winslow and connected families every need is attended too.
