Mary and Lindsey, Sharon and I are so sorry. You know I knew and became friends with Larry at Quintron in 1984. We took breaks together everyday and at times worked side by side. We solved many of the worlds problems during those times. We spoke about sports, work, fishing but most importantly family. When you talk as much as we did, you get to understand how a person feels about a subject. When it came to you two he spoke with pride, with a smile and a whole bunch of love. You two were his life. I know you are missing him greatly as am I. But rest assured Punky is catching up on lost time. If you need anything just let me know. Sincerely Bob Mock
Mary, Lindsey and family our deepest condolences for your loss. Have comfort in knowing he is in Paradise and we will continue to raise you and family up in our prayers. May the Lord have mercy on his soul and protect us all until we are reunited forever.
