My first thought when I met Larry Long about 10 years ago, was my, my...... this man is not only a happy spirit but he is joyful. We have been working together along with Dian some years now in Treasured Doves and I can testify that no matter the situation, Larry was a vessel of joy to the glory of our Lord. His legacy of joy will always inspire me to be the same. My life more enriched because of Larry.

Larry's love for his family, life and ministering to and serving others is an example for all of us. Everywhere you looked he was servicing others. His love for his family was so evident in all he said and did. He was always smiling. He was so sweet to my mom and she loved him. So appreciate him ministering to us and to her during her extended illness. His time here was cut short, but his love and legacy will last forever. We will miss him but rejoice in the fact we will spend eternity together singing and praising our Savior.
