    Dear Donna, Having tried to send you a sympathy card which came back due to an outdated address, here I am on the internet. Donna, that was a wonderful picture of Larry you had posted in the paper. May I presume to share your sorrow as I lost David a few long months ago. I have admired you and Larry for a long time for your inspired and tireless work in behalf of our Lord Jesus. You are in my heart and prayers.
    God will be with you. Love Clara

    We will miss Larry and the times we were able to talk about many things. The photo of Larry will always remind me of a pleasant time we spent building a new fence at the Church. Larry was a loving and caring person in every way.

    Donna, I was so saddened to learn of Larry’s passing yet there was a joyful peace in knowing he is now in the presence of our Savior, Jesus Christ. What a beautiful place to be. I truly remember his generosity toward me as you and I fellowshiped on our trip to Hannibal. He always had a smile and a welcoming spirit. It is my prayer that even through this trial you will be surrounded by the PEACE that only our LORD can provide. It truly does surpass all understanding. I also pray that you feel the arms of JESUS around you today. You are loved so much.
