I'm sorry for your loss guys and im sorry I can't make it to the calling. Larry was a great man and did a lot for me over the years. I'll never forget all of the hall of fame classics we attended together over the years. That was something I looked forward to every year. Thank you Larry for making me the basketball fan I am today

My sincerest condolences to the family. May you find comfort in your treasured memories and in knowing that God is "close to the brokenhearted and to those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18)  He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever ... and wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8). I hope your family will find comfort from God’s promises during this most difficult time.

Joyce, I am saddened to hear of Larry's passing. As you know he was our cousin. Being that I live in Cincinnati, it is hard to keep up with the family. Please accept our condolences. When Larry, my brother Dick and I were kids, we would play cowboys and Indians. Larry was always Roy Rogers, I was Dale Evans and I guess Dick was the Indian. We had great times as kids. Larry will be missed, even though we didn't see each other often. Our prayers for you and your family.
