Dear Joan and family,
There are so many fond memories that we have of Larry. Rick and I always loved talking with him about his mountain cabin. He seemed to always have a story to tell about a fishing trip or work weekend. Seeing him more recently, I could tell that he loved the cabin, but also his visits down to W. Virginia to see Mike and Yvette and the kids! We will miss Larry, and hope you know that he will be in our prayers.

Dear Joan and Family,
It was with great shock and saddness when we heard of Larry's passing. For us, it was certainly unexpected, and many lives will be affected by the void he will leave. He was sure a great guy and wonderful cousin.

Dear Joan, I was sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Larry with fondness. I know we have not been the closest of neighbors, but it was always nice to know that a smile and a wave of a hand would be there as we go about our daily routines. The collection of pictures here gave me a good insight of the joyful life you had together. MaryAnn Fierro
