Larry what an awesome impact and legacy you leave to your friends and family. I knew of you before meeting you from the awesome Jeanne Hoppes!!! The people she loved and had an impact on her life we faithfully prayed for. You were one of those people...”The Best Boss Ever” So thankful I had the pleasure of meeting you at her celebration of life. Separation is so hard...something we just do not adjust to well. Praying for your family!!!
Sincerely,
A Special Sister and Friend of Jeanne❤️🙌🏽✝️🙏🏽

Larry, gonna miss you! I only knew you through our interactions while you were at Access Control. During those interactions you were always very professional and always had the information I needed. You even had time to share a joke or two, you had that laid back attitude but you got things done. You always made time for your Cast and goofed with others to lighten the mood. Thank you for those moments! My condolences to the family...Larry was a good man and we are much better for the experiences we all had with him.
