  • Joyce I’m so sorry for your loss. Larry is having the ride of his life with Sam, Eugene and Butch. Hang on to all the wonderful memories you two have made, and I hope they help you get through this hard time. You are in my prayer.

  • Dear Joyce and family,
    Joyce, Larry was doing what he loved to do…Riding His Bike..all the accidents just didn’t change his way of life. I thought maybe the accident in Columbus slowed him down a bit…but men become bored the older they are and still think they are young enough to do whatever they want to do !!! We cannot change their minds regardless of how old they are, so we give up trying to reason with them and allow them to keep doing what they want to do!!!! The only consoling thing we can say is they were happy enjoying their ” bike riding” and they still had the freedom to do it physically May G0d Bless You and Your Family as you cope with your loss. Will keep you in my prayers and thoughts ! Barb Perkins
