Thank you for signing Martha Jane Hornback's Guestbook
Remembering fondly visits over the years to your parents' home. Mom sure knew how to be a successful, intelligent business woman, a very warm hostess; with interesting conversation, prepare-er of great food, and a genuine smile which I will remember always. You inherited all of those traits Beth!!
