    Larry was a good friend who I will miss very much.
    I can hear his laugh and see his big smile and will miss that to.
    We had great times at the old Cabin. And Larry was always someone I enjoyed just sitting and talking to.
    Him and Pete will hunt again.
    Dennis and Dollie Donahou.

    LJ was one of a kind. I always loved to listen to his duck hunting stories with Whit and I loved to hear him sing and laugh.
    I am praying for the repose of his beautiful soul.

    I am sorry to read of Larry’s passing. We were classmates in the NLRHS Class of 1965. I always enjoyed visiting with Larry at class reunions and when we would run into each other out and about. He will be missed by his family and many friends. Thought and Prayer.

    So sorry to hear Larry has passed away. Haven’t seen him or the children in years. We truly enjoyed all the years of laughter and enjoyed watching the children as they grew to adults. The many memories will always be remembered in our heart. God Bless over all the family. Love Will Never Cease.
