Martha, Roy, Pat and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I did not know about this until just this evening when I talked with Daddy. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. My heart is hurting for you. I have fond memories of Larry sitting at the table in your kitchen, Martha, telling stories and laughing. I shall always remember his laugh.
God bless...I love you!
