We are so thankful for our years of friendship with both Larry and Carole. I had the great pleasure of sharing many years of singing with Larry and the Lansing Barbershop Chapter. Larry always found a way to pull a gag on my wife and I that brought forth considerable laughter, he had a great sense of humor. They will be missed, but now are together again.

So sorry to hear about Larry. Just heard about it today, or you know I would have been there. Once again, my sympathy.

I knew Larry only through the Friday morning senior golf league of which I was a member only three years. One thing that sticks out in my mind about Larry was his apparent memory for names. After I was first introduced to Larry, from then on he knew me by name. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. ~ Ramon Weber, Lansing
