I was so shocked to hear of Larry’s passing. Larry I will never forget you or your contagious laughter. Please tell Daddy (Curtis Gilbert) who loved and adored you hello and hugs from me. (Mom & Floyd too) You were a gift of gab and laughter and anyone that knew you would say the same. I’m gonna miss you little buddy!
But Heaven has a better view and so full of love. Prayers to your family ♥️🙏♥️
You will be truly missed and loved Larry. I’m so sad I’m just finding this out now. I know this for certain. You are one of a kind my friend! Until...we all meet again beyond the blue.
