I am so sorry of Larry's passing. Growing up with Connie, he was always the "pesky" big brother. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

Sad and happy at the same time. So many memories with Larry and his family that I could never comment on just one. We always had a great time when together. He was one of a kind. Love to you Sandy and kids!!!

So sorry to hear about Larry's passing. Always remember him being so involved in 4-H and Junior Leaders when Mike and I were in school. It was good to catch up with Mike when I visited my parents at Miller's in the past year. He will be sorely missed.
