I didn't know Larry very long but he had my heart from the first day I met him. When he giggled he made your day. One evening, when I was assisting him to get ready for bed, he told me 'I Love You Debbie' my heart melted. You will be greatly missed Mr.Craven. I Love You to.

I worked with Mr Craven throughout my whole caregiving career. He brought joy to people's lives everyday with his smile. I have a lot of great memories, my favorite ones are the ones of him with Peggy at his side. She was his world and he loved her very much. It was a pleasure to serve you for so many years, I will miss you.
