Dear Carmen, My children and I are thinking of you at this time. I still have the guns that Larry made the kids and will pass them on to their children. To this day, I still repeat what Larry had to say about cops and criminals. Will share that with you later on. Love, Aunt Rosie

Dear Carmen, Larry was a good guy. He always had time to visit with me & my kids. He showed them how to make "energy balls" and a "bull shit grinder", among other things. He will be remembered as a very unique individual.

To the Family of Larry, I remember Larry while working at the Budd Company, Larry always took time to always say hi & shoot the breeze with me when he had a chance, he was a very hard worker & I have often wondered how he was doing since Budd closed, so sorry for your loss.

Larry was a great guy and fun to be around. I miss the Burr Oak camping trips and your skills at cooking a turkey in a camp fire. Those were great times. Scott
