Pierce, Larry A.'s Guestbook

Larry was more then a neighbor to us for 12 years he was part of our family. He loved my potato salad and coming to all our family gatherings. We went out often to the store or to eat his favorite was V's and MaMa Gardens. He really enjoyed so many things in life such as his cat(s) and watching baseball on tv with my husband. He will surely be missed around the neighborhood.
