Sorry it had been so long to find you all. It's was impossible that Larry is gone. Peace to you and Tracy. May God rest his soul.

Dear Virgie,
I was so sad to read about Larry's passing. We will be lifting you and your family up in our prayers and thoughts. We're still in Iowa, so we'll miss the memorial service. We're sending you much love, Jeanne & Randy Stiles

Dearest Virgilene,
I'm so sorry to hear about the passing away of your dear friend, and sweet husband, Larry. I loved his laugh, his hearty handshake, great ability to tell any story "funnier" and gentle kindness. The saints are rejoicing over another of the brothers coming home to Jesus.
