We were privileged to get to know Larry and Suzy over the last several years when we went to the Fulton YMCA. They were a fine Christian couple that always had a good word to say. We pray the Lord will bring peace to Suzy and family. over Larry's passing. We know who Larry is with now in His heavenly home.

Susie and family,
We are so saddened for the loss of Larry. He was such a part of the community. If he wasn't out walking everyday than he was on his bicycle going around town. Larry and Susie we always so happy and active together. We will truly miss him. We pray that you will find comfort in knowing that he is in Heaven smiling down on you.

I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. He and Susie have always had a special place in my heart. I took care of Nettie when she was in the nursing home and we all became good friends. I will sadly be unable to attend the memorial services due to having to work. I am praying for the family and know that Larry was so special to so many people, just a great man. Love you so much Susie, please forgive me for not being able to attend. Love to you all and God bless.

Susie and family,
I am sorry to hear of Larry's passing but trust the Lord that he is in peace and not suffering any longer. I always enjoyed as a child seeing Larry mow the "triangle" as it was commonly referred to in my childhood neighborhood. Larry always took time to allow myself and the neighborhood kids to shoot hoops on his basketball court and even sometimes found time to help us learn a few new moves. He will be dearly missed by all those who have such fond memories of him. May God hold you especially close during this difficult time. God bless you all.
