I am so sad to hear of Larry's passing. What a wonderful man he helped me with so many home repairs and improvements over the years. There was one time that my pipes froze at the mobile home and he came over with a heater to put under the trailer. I offered him coffee and a muffin and we got to talking and all of a sudden I said do you smell something burning? Anyway the pipes were un thawed and he wrapped them in heat tape so the pipes would not freeze again. Just a very kind, funny and a Man who loved his Lord and family. God Bless all of you through this huge loss.
