Dear Palombi family,
Larry was such a dear dear friend to my family as we did work for him for years in his building business. I had to retire recently due to health reasons and Larry would call to see how I was doing. We all loved him very much and speak of him so very often. May your hearts be comforted by our Lord Jesus Christ and may we be joined again one day in heaven.

So many memories of all your family get together. So sorry to hear the sad news. We don’t speak often but memories of the past come up often. Prayers to you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him driving us to Canada? to your camp. I was probably 7, I remember that I had just learned about speed limits. I think it was 55 miles an hour and he was going 80, I was thinking "we are going to die" :-). We got there at night ,and went up the stairs to bed and then a bat flew into the house. I believe it was your Dad Larry who took care of that. In the morning we went out to the dock and you told us we had to watch for water snakes. It was my scariest vacation but, at the same time I loved it. I loved living next door to all of you. and I partially loved that Mike jr. crying at breakfast with Santa when my Dad Twinkles the clown told him that he was going to tell Santa that he was a bad boy. He was teasing but, you mike jr. teased us a lot. I am sure your Dad and mine will be golfing in heaven.

Larry was an amazing father and always had a sense of humor up until his last days.
He was known for his walks in our Heathrow community. He will be missed everyday.

I will remember Larry for his sense of humor and, in more recent years, his long walks through the neighborhoods near his home. He was friendly to everyone. He often spoke of his family and grandchildren and I know they will miss him terribly. My prayers & thoughts are with you. Rest in Peace, Larry. 😇
