  17. Christy says:

    Larry you will be greatly missed by the crew here at the Mickey mart. You would come in every day and get your 2 pk of camel non filters and a bag of strawberry donuts. Even though you had about 2 or 3 cartons laying around in your truck. Monday morning we could count on you to talk about the NASCAR race. Most times we had to tell you who won. Because you fell asleep. Lee was always ready to give you the stats. Thank you for all the times you gave Jim a ride home. Mornings just won’t be the same without your grumble and a cuss word thrown in.

  18. Sharon Karr says:

    My deepest condolences to all of the family. Larry will be missed much. He was always so respectful to my children and I. We enjoyed so much getting to farm with him years ago. Larry the control is in your hands now. God Bless your soul. We love you!
