We have a lot of wonderful memories of Larry .. we will miss him .
Our prayers and condolences are with you Lorraine, John and David.. so sorry for your loss. Larry was a leader and always very decisive. If he didn’t want to do something he would say so ......I don’t want to do that. I (Doug) always loved that about Larry because if a decision was made it was because Larry wanted to do it too and was not pushed. Things like where to eat, when to visit and it was always fun working it out.
We always love a visit from the Barton’s and will have a drink poured for Larry on Tuesday.
