Penny we are so sorry for your loss. With spending our time in Saginaw with our son we will be unable to attend the service but we do wish you and your family the best in this difficult time. May God bless you and give you strength.
PeeWee and I are again very sorry.

Larry will be missed by anyone who crossed his path. I enjoyed chatting with him at church, and also enjoyed working with him at the Knights of Columbus Sunday breakfast. He was the CEO of washing the dishes at the breakfast, and did a mighty fine job. RIP Larry, your job is done. God Bless You.

Penny & Family: Sorry to learn about Larry's passing. Larry was a long-time customer of mine at the corner store, along with being a faithful church member. He was a very friendly man with a quiet disposition and another Harrison legend. May the good memories carry you through this time of sorrow.
