Remembering Mr. Poole as a very supportive father to his daughter Michelle when she was a student in my kindergarten class. He always took time from his busy job to be present for those special kindergarten events that were so meaningful in the eyes of his sweet little daughter.

Larry was a special friend, since we were about 20 years old. I remember his 1955 red and white Chevrolet car and my 1962 Chevy Impala. Remembering these cars, I also remember the Myrtle Drag Strip. Those were special times in our lives. Larry will be missed and my prayers are with his family and extended family.

Deepest Sympathy,
