Joan I am so sorry for Larry's passing. I know it will be difficult without your partner, but know that God has you in His hands. I will really miss Larry hollering to me from across the street and his chats in the yard. Please don't hesitate to call on me if you need anything.

I'm sorry for the loss of Larry Fisher. I know he was loved by his family and friends and over the years I enjoyed listening to stores from my uncle and aunt Bob and Rita Vago, about how much they enjoyed Larry and Joan's friendship. Think of the good times and great memories. Sorry for your loss, I know he will be missed.
