Like Mara Beth, my fondest memories of childhood are Sundays at Mom and Dad's (Grandma and Grandpa Head) with cousins and with Aunt Alma and Uncle Johnny across the road. I didn't know Larry as an adult or you, Cathy, but you should know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Aunt Alma, Denny, Diana, Brenda, Lauren, and Susan, I'm sorry I can't be there with you to offer my support in person. Be well – Joanne

Cathy and family, I am so saddened by what you and your family are going through right now. You've told me many great stories about you and Larry and I will never forget them. Your family is very close and with time, will heal, but never forget the impact he had on all your lives. I will pray for all of you during this time.
Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss, Kathy and Family. We spent MANY weekends out at your house growing, many weekends that have very fond memories. He was an incredible person, who will be missed by many, and I am truly sorry that in the years since we have moved, closer contact has not been kept. I cannot imagine the pain felt right now, but know that God will be there every step of the way. Our deepest sympathy, The Mohney/Eilers family.
HI TO ALL THE FAMILY, SORRY ABOUT YOUR GREAT LOSS, LOVE YA ALL…WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS WE ALL ASK EACH OTHER WHY NOW, WHY HIM, A GREAT HUSBAND AND A GREAT FATHER, AND BROTHER, GRANDPA…ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY.
