Our sincere condolences on Larry's passing.  He was a great uncle to me and valuable member of the Petry family that will be missed by everyone.   He showed great strength and courage to fight that horrible disease for so long.  It is our fortune to have know a man that was as honorable, generous, and positive as Larry.  We will miss him very much.

Please accept our love and prayers.
