My prayers and thoughts are with the family. Larry was a wonderful grandfather of the students he enrolled at BHCS. He was always so loving and wise when dealing with them individually. He loved you so much, Amber, Bean, Jason and Jacob. He left you a Godly example of someone who loved God and his family.
