Larry and I were best friends in high school and for years after. We shared countless memories but one that I want to share now is about our dogs. Tramp and Mr Bill were our dogs. They were best friends just like me and Larry. They roamed the neighborhood reckless and free. Everyone new them and sometimes not in a good way. Many times we had to go to the dog pound to bail them both out. Larry and I grew apart later in life but we always stayed in touch and shared many fish tales. In the latter part of Larry’s life every time we talked we told each other “ I love you “. You will be missed brother. I am gonna share one last picture of my latest fish tale that you never got the chance to see. I love you Larry . Over and out. Rick Cole

I love you and miss you so very much and will hold cherished memories of you in my heart forever! You had the warmest heart that brought smiles to many people. What I will miss most are our phone calls every day and the special "goodnight" call. Your heart was full of love for others and God. I was amazed by how much scripture you could quote by memory. You will be missed by your "best buddy", GIZMO. If he could talk, he would thank you for your abundant love and all the experiences you shared together! God bless you and may you rest in peace. I love you!

My heart is broken to hear of this loss. Jackie I know you had a special bond with Larry that can't be broken. You were a great sister, companion and angel to him. May all the great memories help overshadow the grief and loss you are feeling.
Thoughts go out to the entire family...Daniel, Betty and all who held Larry dear to heart.
I too have great memories of Alice Drive...we played hard as kids, not a care in the world. I look back and cherish those wonderful memories.
Jackie love you and wish you the best in days ahead. Look forward to his celebration of life service.
Larry - you are missed fondly by many may you rest in peace.

Jackie and Family,
I was so saddened to hear about Larry. I remember us all at school together. He always had a smile, just like you. He always was having fun. I cannot imagine your pain. It is hard on us all to loose a sibling or parent, but I have heard twins have this connection that is different with other siblings. I hope your memories out way the sadness and always laugh at the things we all did in school and remember the closeness you two shared.
God bless you and your family.
Cheryl

Sandy, Joey and I were sharing our fond memories of Larry and you Jackie. There are so many. Playing ball and spending the night or camping out. We should not lose touch of people that have meant
so much to us. We had a horse for a short time and Larry would come to ride him and the horse always stopped abruptly and lowered his head and Larry would slide off and down in front of the horse. I think we still have a video of that on 8mm film.
We send our love to you and your family. May your memories
over take your sorrow.
Sandy, Suzie and Joey
