Joyce, Kathy & Bruce , Pam & Geoffrey. Jeff & Lisa may God grant you His comfort during this very difficult time. Your family has meant so very much to us. As neighbors for so very many years, Mary will greatly miss Larry. And since Donna was born on his high school graduation day she has known him her entire life and will miss him, too. And, thank you for welcoming me into the neighborhood when Donna and I were married 39 years ago. People like Larry and your entire family have always been something becoming rare; just good people. God bless.
