Goodbye to my wonderful high school classmate. Larry Barron was such a fine young man back then and he was the same in his adult life. He was a gentleman by all measures. It saddens me to write this note, but one thing is for certain, Heavens' Gates opened up for Larry when our Lord and Savior called him home, but we can rejoice in knowing that one day we will be with Larry again where there is no pain and suffering. Until that time, I will remember Larry as being "Just Beyond The Sunset' and know he is smiling from above. I am so sorry for this great loss! Special prayers to your sweet wife Peggy and your son Tim. Also special prayers to your great friends Jerry Hisaw and Gary Huddleston for I know they will really miss you too. May God's Grace, Peace and Love be with all your vast friends and family in this sad time.
