I am so sorry to learn of Larry passing away. He was a High school classmate at the old Liberty Center High School, and he was always so kind~~always had a smile, and seemed to always be thinking ahead. I haven't seen him since school days, and never knew where he settled, but when reading the obituary in the news, I was pretty sure it was the same Larry that I knew. You are in my thoughts, and Prayers.

Randy, Travis and Missy,
My thoughts are with you all today. I am sorry that I can't be there with you to share memories of times spent with your Dad. Even when we were being bratty kids, I don't think I ever saw him really upset with us. Find comfort in each other. Take time to stay close. Family is important.
