Pops will always be remembered as a loving great grandpop. I will never forget his morning golf-cart runs to go feed the catfish in the morning, or just try and grab somebody to talk to. He was always so kind and i loved hearing his many stories. My great grandpa was strong, and brave right to the end. I will forever be proud to have a man like Larry as my great gandpops. I will contantly miss him and his breakfast he enjoyed cooking for the kids. I know he is happy and safe in heaven with his family. Pop i love you so much and I am so proud to be your great grand daughter. Until we meet again your forever in my heart.
