Valerie, We are so sorry for your loss. When I think of Larry I remember he was always smiling. Always willing to share his trials but never complaining about them. He was a fighter. He will be missed. Love, Roy & Carol

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from God's word at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. Heartfelt prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Valerie, You & your family are in our thoughts and prayers today. We would love to have been there with everyone. Just not possible at this time. Enjoyed Larry's posts on Facebook. He was always so upbeat & thankful for all he went through. Sad to think you two had so many retirement plans & it ended so quickly. On the bright side you did get your camper to the Dells & set up so you enjoyed it together. Sending Gods blessings & tons of love & hugs. Uncle Dave & Aunt Janice ☺ ❤❤

I'm very sorry for your loss. Larry was truly one of a kind. He lived a full life, and lived it on his own terms. I was lucky to know and work with him. He will be remembered and missed by many.

I am so sorry for your lose. He will be missed by so many. My best memories of Larry is playing cards with you and him at your mom & dads house. Most of the time you guys would bet mom's and my butt. May he rest in peace.

Val, I was always talking with Larry on the computer. He had one of the best sense of humor around. His humor always put a smile on my face that lasted all day. He would encourage me to do better with my therapy and to improve my health. He was a good man and will be missed greatly.
