  1. We still miss you more than ever Papa. Logan still, as a teenager now, sleeps with the Yoo-Hoo stuffed animal she gave you to hold when you were in the hospital. I think Yoo-Hoo will be in her wedding some day. She cries for you at times still & thinks about you so often. She loves her videos of you telling her, “No Logan you’re beautiful” & she would say, “No Papa you beautiful.” Lane graduates next year & looks like the Reed side too & definitely has the smarts. He is top in his class 13 out of 118. Dale & I just enjoy the simple things in life & miss you every day. Xoxoxo

  2. Heaven had a sweet melody playing the day Larry arrived there. I can’t imagine Larry being any sweeter there than what he was here… God called a good man home. One of my fondest memories of Larry was watching him look at his sister and his lady love, Judy G. and Judy P. His eyes and face would shine with love every time he glanced their way. To Larry’s family and friends, I’m so very sorry for your loss.
    God Bless,

  3. Goodbye cousin. I’m so sorry to hear you are gone. We didn’t get word until it was too late. We thought you were home from the hospital and doing well. So much for thinking. My best memories are the farm in Cotapaxi and playing in the barn, Randy getting kicked by the horse. Maybe that wasn’t the best but we still talk about it. Then of course the goose got after him too. We will still keep you in our memories, cousin. Love you lots.

  4. Our deepest sympathy goes to Judy G. and Judy P.,Dale,Darrin,Duane and all the extended family. How much we were blessed with his presence in our family. What a joy to remember his never ending smile. Such a caring giving person and we grieve the loss but we know he is with the rest of the angels as he was and is surely one of Gods most beautiful angels. Sorry we were out of town and not able to be at the services.
    Much Love, Richard and Candy

  9. When I think about Larry, I remember that he always had a smile on his face and was pleasant to talk to. I will miss him greatly.

  10. I met Larry during my childhood in Minturn. During my teenage years and into young adulthood, he was a very positive role model. I am very thankful for his presence in my life when I truly needed it. Larry will be missed very much by all.

  11. I met Larry during his railroad days in Minturn. He was a great friend, I have never laughed so much with anyone like I laughed with Larry. He will be greatly missed by so many people because he had such a great personality. I used to call him Larrance and he called me Mirth. A page has turned but, we can all flip back through the pages and keep our own personal memories of that wonderful person. I am thankful that I knew him. My sincere condolences to his family. Darla

  12. Grandpa Larry
    He was a wonderful man . He was loving , sweet ,funny and most of all he never gave up not on anyone or himself … He would do anything for anyone ….. I love you Y’all

  13. I worked with Larry on the railroad for over twenty years. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word if you needed it. Larry was training to become an engineer at the sametime I was training to become a conductor. Whenever I had the pleasure to be his conductor he would always take time and ask if there was anything he could help me with or if I just wanted to talk about things, what a dear and good friend and fellow railroader. Larry will be sadly missed and I want to tell his family I am sorry for their loss and to believe Larry is in a much better place now.
