For the family of Larry Morrison, your Dad & I shared a lot of memories growing up when we were kids. We worked together, hunted & fished together. Then when we got out of school, went our separate ways. Larry went in the US Navy, I into the US Airforce. We always tried to stay in touch.
Larry was a great friend, you would always know he was there if needed. Sure hurt when notified of his passing. We share your lost & our prayers are with the family. Sorry we’re out of town & won’t be able to be there. Bob & Lee McCall
