I am so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. He was a year ahead of me in school but I’ve known him for many years, though I haven’t seen him in years so this is quite a shock. Please accept my condolences.

You probably don't know me. I live in Union City and work at Dr Davis office. I know Bill. I am so sorry for your loss. I worked at Wal-Mart for 25 years so I knew Larry. When I saw Larry's birthday I knew he was born the same time as my sister. Mom always talked about being in the hospital with Jenny Bradbury when on Christmas day my sister was stillborn. Mom didn't have a baby to bring home, but Jenny helped her get through as they shared a room. God bless you and give you peace at this time.
