Larry was a neighbor of mine. He was a little younger than me, but a sweet kid. So sorry to hear of his passing.

Larry was a kind, gentle man and my friend since childhood. Lived next door and his Mom always said my Daddy taught him how to hunt. I would like to know about the memorial service. God strengthen all of his family.
