Mary Ann, the things you've been through the last several years all I can say  is that the Lord must seem to think you are one of his strongest warrior's! You've been through so much, yet always keep that smile on your face. Even though I meet your husband a hand full of times he was a very pleasant and funny man, with a gentle soul. They say the Lord doesn't give us more than we can handle and at this point I'm sure your cup runneth over!! Like you told me when i lost my son, theres no time to tell anyone to grieve and it's all different for each of those we lose. Just know I love you dearly you're in my thoughts and prayers. Let me know if you need anything at all I will help with anything.  Love you!! Xoxo

What can I say about a great guy with a BIG heart that gave me so many happy memories for 34 years at work, during retirement, while hunting and shooting, not to mention the many phone calls.
Whenever I needed an answer on anything, Larry had "a" answer.
You will be missed by all that knew you and those that didn't know you, they missed a lot!

MaryAnn, I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember when you started dateing Larry. You had just been through some difficult times in your life. Then Larry came into it. I never saw you so happy. The glow you had just saying his name. So much love. I remember the stories you would tell me at work about how sweet and kind and loving man he was. And it was obvious by his actions how he loved you as much. Next thing i knew, you were planning a move and a wedding. I'm happy the two of you found each other and had the happy years that you did together. I know you will miss him terribly. I pray you find peace. Love you Mare.
