I will always remember Larry and hold his friendship dear as he talked about his grand baby and we talked about our families, motorcycles and life in general. I worked with Larry at Whitaker Bank and he loved my cooking and spicy crackers. I’ll never forget Larry. May God bless you and your family. You have my sincerest sympathies. I wish I could be there, I have moved to Florida and unable to attend.

Larry would come down to Eaton & Gibbs and hang out sometimes. He was a sweet and funny man. He will be missed.

We wanted to express our sympathy to you and your family this verse encouraging during our time of loss. “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Jesus referred to himself to as “the resurrection and the life” at John 11:25. We pray that in the days to come you will be strengthened.
