Jill, Steve and families. Bonnie and I would often talk to your dad after church, he was always a ray of sunshine. He told us of his frequent visits with your mom at Abe Lincoln. They are together again for eternity. It will be an extreme privilege along with The Patriot Guard to give him all the honor he deserves.

Larry always had a way of brightening any place he went. His kindness, generosity and loving spirit was infectious, and I will always treasure the memory of times I was privileged to spend with him. In my home I enjoy the CD towers he fashioned for me from actual organ pipes, and they always remind me of Larry. I am so grateful that our lives interfaced, and was privileged to know him. May light perpetual shine upon him as he now lives in God's presence.
