    I'm so sorry for your loss, Larry was one of a kind. Although I came to know him early on working together @ Creative Kitchens & Bath Design where I found him to be a hard worker who was diligent in doing the job right the first time. He was a very upbeat contractor who stood by his word. He was a true inspiration to me and I'm sure he was a great husband to you Margie as well as an awesome father too! Praise the Lord that Larry knows Jesus Christ as his savior!

    I remember this beautiful boy from our youth group at church. I remember when he married his lovely bride. I am so happy that God richly blessed them with precious children and grandchildren. My prayer is that the Lord will comfort and sustain you in the coming days. I am so very sorry for your loss.
