Our Sincere Condolences

So sorry to hear of Larry’s death. May God bless you and give you strength in the days as you go forward with your grief.

Very sorry to learn of Larry’s sudden death. We were all together 3 weeks ago at Wilbur Park’s funeral at Independence, Mo & now you’re gone.
We were connected through our love of traveling & camping as members of the JAYCO Club. We will miss you dear friend. May our Heavenly Father give you Mitch strength & comfort to carry on in the days ahead.
Terry & Gayle Thompson

I will miss the good times and great conversations we all had every Saturday morning at the VFW hall with many of the Holmes Creek men.
Larry was always the 1st to arrive !
May you rest in peace.
I will pray that God watches over your family.
