Larry, my deepest condolences to you and your family. I thought as a little girl he was the tallest man I’d ever seen. I can remember him being an usher and greeting people before and after church at The Church of God and his singing. I saw your dad always with a kind greeting and a smile. Cyndie Harris Heath

I remember Larry singing along with the radio when I was 3. Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire". I always think of that whenever I think about Larry. Johnny is going "down, down' down, but I believe that Larry has passed like Elijah: 2 Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, which parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. A ring of fire, a ring of fire. Michael Edward Thompson
