Our condolences to Larry’s family. We are in his Sunday School class and he was an excellent teacher and will be missed by everyone. Larry visited with us a couple days before he entered the hospital. We will cherish that visit forever. At some point in every visit Linda’s remembrance would be discussed. He loved his wife so very much. RIP Larry and Linda. We miss you, Bob and Phyllis
