Lori and Larry sorry to hear about your dad he was always one of my favorites to talk to at the reunions

My deepest sympathy, to Mr. Larry P. Walters family and friends. Death cause much pain, the pain that the" Bible compare to having a long sword run through you" Luke 2:35. May you find comfort from Almighty God who gives comfort to all (2 Corinthians 1-3-4)

Words of sympathy are very hard to express, but my thoughts and prayers to both Lori and Larry Paul for the loss of their father and my uncle. Although I unfortunately cannot go to his service any pay my condolences, he will be sadly missed and not forgotten. He is now with his brothers and sisters in Heaven and I am sure they are telling stories and jokes and are sharing ice cream with my dad. I will definitely be visiting his gravesite as I always do when I visit my parents. Hugs and prayers to all of you at this very difficult time.
