    My heartfelt condolences to Teresa, Donna, Bryan, and Randy, plus all the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Larry was my cousin, one of the first cousins I ever knew. My parents loved his family so much! I can remember with great fondness, staying at their house when I was sick and Mom had to work. I looked up to Linda because we shared a great love of horses. Larry was always there to talk to and joke around with. I feel blessed that I was a part of his family in a small way. Please know he is now watching over all of you.
