We send our heartfelt condolences to all of Larry's family. We are so saddened by his passing. Larry was a good neighbor and a dear friend to us. He never complained and always had a smile and a kind heart and he is someone whom we will never forget. I can't believe he is gone for he was so happy and full of life the few weeks before his passing. Larry, now that you are free, I can see you driving away in that new Chevy Corvette you wanted and traveling wherever your heart desires and I hope that you are at peace which you most certaily deserve. Goodbye.
