Larry got a 5 point bull this morning and I am sure he would say “This one’s for Ma Holm!” I believe your sevices started shortly after his successful hunt. I know that is where you would want him to be. We miss you and have been humbled by the graceful and loving way you led your life. Love, Larry Lee, Zee, Landon and Tanner
