Uncle Dorris, Aunt Margaret, Brenda, Glenda and families: We were so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. Don't know how parents deal with the loss of a child--it just shouldn't be that way. We are thinking of you. With so many nice comments, we can see he was a fine young man!. Love to all of you.

He will be missed by all Mo Career Center staff from the St. Louis Area. He always had a smile on his face everytime he came to a local office to repair/replace our equipment. My prayers go out to his family.

Larry was a great guy! When he would come to the Kennett office to fix our machines or run wire he was always very sweet and kind. We felt like he was one of our own family members. He will be missed! Larry was always the one who kept us laughing in the office when he came to visit! May God Bless you with comfort, peace and strength through this loss.
