Sylvia, Ladeanna, Carrie and families, we were so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. I have fond memories of Larry and think the world of him and his family! He was a good man who was very giving in all he did. I will always remember him sitting at the end of the gym floor watching the kids play. Whether they were yours, ours, or theirs, he was yelling for and supporting the Tigers. We will all miss him, but know that he is in a much better place. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. May God comfort and bless you all! We love you!
Will miss hearing some big story about one of his grandkids killing deer/turkey or catching fish. Prayers for the family.
