  8. I am so very sorry for your loss. I was not Blessed to know Larry, but saw this and wanted to pay my respects.
    Our families have a history together though. Harold Meadows and my daddy Carrell Luther were friends and owned a little store together when I was a child.
    My daddy passed January 7th, 2008, so I know they will be glad to see one another after all these years.
    Sending your family prayers and strength during this sad and unexpected time.
    God Bless
