Phyllis and family Don, Kenny, Sheri, Dana, Craig so sorry for your loss. Larry was a great man and friend. Pam and I so enjoyed chatting and catching up with you and Larry in Kents parking lot a few weeks ago, it was time well spent. I guess the thing that really sticks out in my mind is cutting fire wood down behind the house (a semi-load). I picked up that old chain saw a week ago and thought how in heck did i pack that thing around in the woods and down by the back road and cut fire wood. That dang thing is heavy. He will be missed dearly we love ya and are here to help with anything that we can
