    candle 8Praying for Karen & Larry’s loved ones. Larry was a one of a kind man. As nice & thoughtful as he was, he was just as stubborn. He was always so kind to those he loved & to complete strangers! I have been blessed to know & love Karen & Larry for several years. Larry fought very hard for a long time now he is without pain in Heaven. Rest In Peace Larry ❤️

    candle 8Larry and Karen have been our dear friends for many years. Larry was a kind and loving man, always willing to help anyone who needed it. In recent years L really suffered, and he was pretty much home-bound and unable to do the things he loved with Karen, which bothered him. I want to take this time to thank Larry for his dedicated service to our country, something none of us should ever forget. Larry, tell my Dave hi and that he’s deeply missed. May you both be showered in God’s love from now and into eternity. Much Love, Bev
