The last few years, I have missed Larry coming past and stopping to chat or to get some rhubarb in the spring.  We shall miss him.  I still remember the wonderful southwest relish he brought us from Texas - a product of his Aunt Sarah's family.  He had a "good heart."  He treasured his families memorabilia.  God Bless.

sadden to hear of Larry's passing...the picture you chose is how I remember him...he definitely didn't know a stranger and always a kind word whenever we would run into one another...his gentle manner was quite an admirable quality, I always thought, and I liked that in him...remembering his smile

I'm so sadden of Larry's passing. He had been a loyal friend throughout our lives. Good times and sad times he would be there with me. I'm so grateful to have had him in my life. He was a good man, good friend to many and I will truly miss him. Oh, he used to show up at my place wherever I lived with the scrabble board game wanting a challenge, I would try to make up words and convince him it was!!! We would laugh and he'd let me use it, then make fun of the words for yrs!! He loved to dance, horseshoes, play cards(very serious in poker)and shoot the shit with everyone, he had no enemies, just a good guy and hard worker. Rest in heavenly peace Larry, many will miss u!!
