    Lots of love to his family.
    Larry hadmore family than he realized until we talked at my sisters funeral a couple of years ago
    which we had a chance to talk. He was a cousin to my mother through his Grandmother Taylor.
    and the connection through Wilder cox my uncle.
    he and I were Vietnam Vets but did not serve together
    he literally gave his life for his Lord, Country and family

    See you in heaven brother.

    Bro. Larry was our pastor at Wheeler Grove Baptist Church, Corinth, MS when I was young. He wasn’t only our pastor but a dear family friend. I have some great memories of he and his family. He was always down to earth and could talk to anyone! Later in my life, he returned to Corinth to officiate my wedding. He was a trooper, as he was getting squirted with water guns during the ceremony as well as many other shenanigans that my family was doing.
    I love this man and his family, although we haven’t been close in many years now. I know he is looking into the face of Jesus now and I continue to pray for this family!
