Jo Ann and family, so sorry to hear about Larry's passing. please accept my condolences. I knew Larry while an employee for the city of South Gate. During that time he was also the Union Stewart and represented our clerical employees. I'm thankful for his service. May our Lord Jesus give you comfort at this time.
