My dearest Cathie I was so sorry to hear about Larry. I remember she y’all lived in Hutchins/- the corner house I believe, your love of dogs. I’m trying to remember if y’all were in all card games we played but I had a wonderful time with your siblings. I remember Fruitdale and walking to your house. I’m sending prayers of strength and comfort to you and your children. With love, Dianna

Larry was my brother and he will be missed by all! We spent time together when we were younger and his dad dated my mom. Love to the family and God Bless!

If Cathie & Larry were together over 50 years, then I've known him since I was at least 10 years old. Wow..... It's such a shame when you lose contact because life gets in the way. But my memories of Larry were always nice ones. Times of going to the lake with the Zmolik clan. Watching Carla, Brandon, Ken & Kevin while there was a wild game of Poker being played by the adults. And Larry was always kind.
I know he'll be missed by everyone who knew him. My thoughts and prayers go to Cathie and then the kids. I am so sorry for your loss.
