My sincere condolences Kelly and to the entire Schneider and Klohr Families. All of us will forever remember Larry for being an honest and genuine affectionate man. I always enjoyed his high energy level and outpouring of inspiration throughout the years. For too many the time ends too soon but Faith is a plant that can grow in the shade, a grace that can fine the way to heaven in a dark night. They'll be Peace and glorious reunion amongst the Heavens.
