Alta has been a part of our family for nearly 40 years. We love her and all of the Horton family. I praise our God that she is happy and rejoicing with her husband, Gina and my precious sister Dena. Oh what a reunion! Much love to all the Horton family. Thank you for sharing Alta with us all these years.
