I am really going to miss Larry. As our neighbor I have gotten to know him and really enjoyed getting to visit with both he and Beth. He reminded so much of my father.. caring and an interesting guy. Chuck and Colleen Hubert

Dear Beth & Family

I enjoyed working with Larry so much. He was wonnderful to work with and a truly good person. The times we spent "in the trailers" ws unique, and I still tell people about our "pig-outs". Charli, Sylvia and I were together Monday evening remembering all of the good times. I think Larry would have been very pleased to know that we are still in touch.

Please know my thought and prayers are with you, and that Larry still remains a good friend.

Love and prayers,

Candy Straub

It was an honor to spend time with Larry, the family and family friends during the last weeks & days of his earthly life. It was heartwarming to see how you gathered around him, supported & prayed for him and loved him. In the end, what a beautiful peace. May God's peace continue to be with you all in the days ahead as you adjust to your loss.
