Mr Larry, as we always call him was one of our favorite people at our little children’s store. He would come by a couple of times a week with his precious little granddaughter on their daily walks around the neighborhood. His kindness and sweet spirit always gave our day a bright spot. He always treated employees with friendship and respect. We know that he made so many special memories for Addy. What a wonderful person.

Larry “ACE” and I were best friends he lived 2 doors from me. We did everything together all the way from JH high school through high school. We both were in the band and what a great time we had.
I have been trying for over a year to locate him but I was not able to and I am so devastated I could not.
Rest in piece my friend.

Your Dad's politeness is one of my favorite memories. I remember being with Deonnah and Steve going to your Mom and Dad's house and she was fixing lunch. Your Dad said you have to stay and eat with us. Of course we stayed. The plates that hung on their wall in the Dining area were so beautiful as was your Parents. This was kindness I will never forget. Love you, Jody
