    So sorry guys. Larry, Ron and I had some good times together over the years. I never realized it was Larry who kept dropping off chickens at my house the one summer! I started with 6 and ended up with close to 20! He never admitted it until a few years later and boy did we laugh. Rip Larry.

    Larry was a great guy! He was just the type of person you knew you were going to like from the get go, always friendly,polite the kind of person that made me wonder why our creator gave him so much restraint, the kind of person I wished I was. Thank you god for giving Larry to all of us.
