Sorry for your loss. The Kerrville VFW Post 1480 will drape our Charter in Larry's honor at our next general meeting. We will move his life member's name plaque to the departed board at that time. With deep condolences, Mike Tivy, Adjutant.

Karen: Please know that we are greatly saddened by the loss of your husband. With the other things that are on your mind, this seems so severe. However, if the Lord can take you to it, He can carry you through it. We know your time together was short but, the "Lord gave us memories so that we can enjoy Roses in December". Stick to the positive memories.... God Bless and Keep you daily... Jane and Don....

To Seth, Jennifer and Karen, Our most heartfelt condolences to you all. R.L. and Larry worked together in the Houston Fire Department for several years and we lived next door to them in Warrenton for about 3 years. Sadly we lost touch for a number of years but we looked Larry up in Kerrville about 7 or 8 years ago. He knew us right away but couldn't remember where we lived. It was good to see him again and we're sorry we didn't keep in better communication with him. We had some great times with him in the past and knew Seth and Jennifer when they were really young. We used to babysit them all the time, even after we moved here to Bellville. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Love, R.L., Linda, Kenny and Jeff Williams
