    Kristy, I am so sorry to hear about your dad he was a great person I enjoyed my visits with him when he was working at the park next to Morrison’s. He always had a smile on his face, and he was a hard worker. Rest in Peace Larry.

    A amazing man. Gone to soon. He will be missed by many. He was a gift to all of us. He was my uncle and we weren’t close but we did have some very good conversations and he always made me feel comforted and attentive. He will be missed dearly by Mom (his sister) he was always so caring about her well-being. Fly high and watch over us all. Go Niners!!!
