    To the family of Larry I express my deepest regrets. Larry and I both worked for Sams for the last few years and there was no one person there I liked better than Larry. We would alway kid each other anytime we happened to run into each other at the break room or at the gas station where I work. I had been trying to get up to see Larry at Crestwood for several weeks since I’m from Shelby and was close.But inspite of that fact I still never made it there and I feel very bad about that. My problem was that I have been very sick also and just finished a three and half weed stint in the Cleveland Clinic hospital where they removed my colon. I hope that you and he will forgive me for that. He was a wonderful wonderful man and we all will miss him very much. I had thougt from some of the reports that I got that he was on his way to recovery and I’d be seeing soon back over at Sam’s. God bless you all
