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

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.
