    We were blessed to have lived next to Larry for about 8 years and he was such a wonderful neighbor, often meeting us at the fence for a friendly chat. After moving away we would stop by and visit and enjoyed listening to Larry’s stories and looking at his airplane collection. He was an honest, kind, generous man and will be dearly missed! Sending our deepest condolences. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers! Jeremiah & Alicia Blain
