I sure do remember all those good times we used to have when we were children, playing down at the Greer farm on Highway 20. It's all a subdivision, now, but we sure had fun then. I hope you told all those stories to your children and grandchildren.

I am so sorry to hear about Mr.Larry. I will always remember how he would come to the dealership to aggravate me about those Dodge Vehicle's(I will miss it). You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Even if the time I knew Larry was short,
he was one that was easy to get to know
and fun to be around. He possesed great
talent in saddle making and in other areas as well. I'd bet my spurs on that. He will be missed by all.

He was one of the greatest Pop anyone could have. He loved his family and especially his grandchildren and they loved him dearly. He had a good sense of humor about him from the time I joined the family till the time he left us. He will be miss dearly but never forgotten. He will always be with us as long as we keep his memories alive within our hearts.

I know we have not been in contact over the many years but always got updates from Bob Minter. My prayers are with you Sherry, your Mom and the rest of your family.

Take Care,
