  1. So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing and sorry we cannot be there but you will all be in our thoughts love you Doris and Travis

  2. Jarry was such a wonderful man. I always enjoyed our conversations, he could talk about anything and he always made me feel comfortable around him. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, and brother-in-law. It is so sad to see him go but I know he is with the love of his life now. Praying that God will lay His hand over the family and comfort them.
