It has only been in the past year or two that Larry and I became friends on facebook. I don't exactly remember how it happened. One of us must have a friend or friends in common, I guess. I really enjoyed connecting with Larry. We are cousins, but I had not seen him for many many years. I think the last time I saw him was as a child. I suppose it could have been at the Brownfield Reunion in Mason City too. I enjoyed our
exchanges on facebook. I honor his service to our country too. I am so sorry that I won't be communicating with him anymore. I am his cousin. Uncle Harry and my father, Frank Brownfield were brothers. Prayers for the family. Sorry we have never met. Betty (Brownfield) Dobbins. On facebook, Betty Jean Dobbins.

My sincere condolences goes out to Larry's family. He will be sincerely missed! He was a longtime friend and comrade of many years. I think back on we were in Iraq at the same time. Larry was on a mission to Anacona and knew I was there. He went out of his way to look me up so we could visit. That was a special time that I will always cherish.
