Larry "Ed" was a man of few words but held a huge kind heart.
I was blessed to live across the street from him and his wife Grace.
They were such nice people and great neighbors to have. Also, making me feel welcomed and safe to the neighborhood.
After losing his wife Grace and he moved things just haven't felt the same on the block and I've constantly wonder how is has been doing.
No need to wonder anymore because now he is back with his beautiful soul of a woman Grace and in the Lord's welcome.
I will always remember these two great people.
I was always remember him not as Larry but, as "Ed"
May they Rest In Peace together now.
Many prayers of comfort to the family, always wishing them wellness.
