Sorry to hear of Larry's passing. My sympathy to you Lyn, Darby and Dustin. You are in my prayers

I would like to express my sincere condolences to you and all of your family. I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Larry in the fab shop for years. Larry was a great guy, always had a smile. We had fun at social events. I saw Larry at Chances a few weeks ago or so and we had a good chat. I'm glad I had that opportunity. Larry will be missed.

Lynn and Family: We are so very sad and sorry to learn of Larry's passing. Please know that our heartfelt thoughts are with you and yours. Sincerely, Ron, Janice and Cecil Hardisty.
