Lacey, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He truly is one of a kind, and it was always a pleasure to talk with him. I have just learned what happened and it is too late to get the two of us ready to go out, or we would have been at the funeral. Please know that we wish you and your family well, especially in the hard times. Sincerely, Marie Wahlquist

Megan,Laceyand Mitchel I'm so sorry with your loss. I enjoyed the many years visiting with your family. Your Father was a good friend. I hope all will be well with all of you and your families. May Heavenly Father bless you. I wanted to attend the services but I have balance problems and have difficulty walking without help. Bro. Fullmer also asked me to give his condolences.

Your favorite stool at the end of the bar will always be there for you with a Bud ready and waiting. It won't be the same on those busy Saturdays and Sundays at the Shooting Star without you instructing me to get back in the Kitchen and flip those burgers! Your unique personality and unwavering friendship, as well as outspokenness will be missed by your Shooting Star Family. Ride on Larry, we will never forget to support our favorite Asshole! With Love and Condolences, Amy, Carol and the Shooting Star.
