We are sorry for your loss. You are in our prayers and thoughts. We were always so thankful for Larry being a good neighbor. He would take care of mom's lawn when she couldn't. Rest in peace Larry.

Larry was a very giving person. Once Christmas he gave my son, Tyler a remote control car and it was the best gift he received that year.
