    So sorry to hear of this sad news of Larry passing. I grew up as neighbors to Larry and Cindy, and will always have fond memories of babysitting for the family. I know Larry always enjoyed life. I know Julie, Kelly, and Skip will miss him.

    Cindy, Julie, Kelly and Skip
    I was so saddened to hear of Larry’s passing. My prayers are with you.
    After all these years, every time I would see Cindy and Larry it was always “Hey Rocky, how you doing?” So many memories of the summers at your house.
