"To try to blend two families is not an easy task. Loving someone else's children just seems too much to ask. It took some time and patience, and understanding from the heart. We linked our arms together and made a new start. God weaved us all together, he made us into one. Two families well blended, he proved it could be done." Over the last 27 years, one of Larry's greatest joys in life was his blended family.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 p.m. Friday, April 25, 2014, at Hubbard-Kelly Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Johnny Thomason officiating. Services entrusted to Hubbard-Kelly Funeral Home.
