    Steven and I thought so much of "Uncle" Larry. So sorry to hear that he has passed from this life, but joyfully thinking of the reunion in Heaven with his loved ones who went before. Steven and I have great memories of visiting with everyone in the summers and I am praying for you all. Deanna Bohannon & Steven Sanders, Wedowee, AL

    Spending the night at Uncle Red and Aunt Mary's house...bowling in the shed (I busted Larry's bowling ball)...thinking of how Larry teased me of not being a "real" Murray because I didn't drink much coffee...grateful that Larry's family included my Dad (Raymond) in their cabinet business while I was across the country being a "big shot"...remembering my last call from Larry when we agreed to meet the following Tuesday for lunch. I met with the fam and not Larry...driving thru Wilmington yesterday Janet said, "I sure miss Larry"! Miss you much cuz! See at at the House...soon and very soon! ("...see you in a minute") Ray and Janet

    Margie, I was so saddened to learn of Larry's passing. We've worked together for so many years. A lot of good, long and joyful conversations. I know how much Larry loved his family, you were all the center of his world. Please know we are all thinking about you and our hearts are with you during this great loss. My love to you and all of your family. Barb
