Dear Chris and family. I'm so sorry about losing Larry. He was a good man and a dear friend of mine. We had lots of good times as well as meaningful discussions. He was always a faithful and dependable friend. He loved all of his family and was very proud of them. Our last real chat was at the club when he shared photos of his very large family. I laughed as he had so much hair on his head, I could hardly recognize him. He also showed me pictures of his masonry work. He was very talented and very proud, as he should have been.
May the peace of the Lord be with you as Larry is home now. Dave Gibbs
