    To our dearest Larry,
    There is no words to explain how much you meant to us and we will always have very great memories of you. We know you loved us as much as we loved you.

Heaven sure gained a very special man. We love and miss u always.

  2. RIP fellow Vietnam Vet. You have earned aa rest. As a member of our daily breakfast group, you will be sadly missed. When GOD made you I am sure he has the mold on a shelf near him. You are dearly missed.

    I will always remember the great times spent in Illiopolis as a kid. Grandpas and Grandmas and running with you and Uncle Jim. Memories that will last my lifetime. You were Jim’s best friend. It’s been years since I have seen you excepting for pictures sent. I am happy in the belief that you, Lon and Jim are together along with everyone else. See you all at the appointed time. Peace. Praise God.
