Condolence & Memory Journal

Carolyn, Tim & Lisa: Larry was our neighbor and friend. I have lived next to Larry for the past forty five years and I know Larry just loved being outside in his yard, enjoying his time with his grand children and family. What some people might not know is his kindness and thoughtfulness towards people. I remember back 10 years ago. I had hurt my back and was laid up for most of the summer of 2006. I looked out the window one day and saw Larry, knowing I was hurting, was out mowing my lawn in the back yard (which is more than a half acre). He did this without being asked and he did it for a good part of the summer. This is just one of the things Larry did for me that I will never forget. May God bless Larry, Carolyn, Tim, Lisa and his entire family. You will be missed but never forgotten. Bob & Linda Cook

Carolyn, I am so sorry for your loss, was looking forward to seeing both of you and sorry that won't be possible, but wanted you to know what a great person Larry was and his twin Harry who I knew a little better, but hope you can take some comfort knowing he is no longer suffering and hopefully the twins are reunited, and know that he will always be with you in your heart!

So sorry for your loss. He will surely be missed. He was a kind man who doted on his children/grandchildren and wife. When Larry and Bob mowed the lawn they would meet at the border of their land, and talk for awhile then continue on. He was always outside working on some project. He will surely be missed by all. May he RIP.
