Zach and family, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Larry. He was a very caring man and loved his family very much. I remember as a kid when he worked for Amerigas, I lived on the corner and would run to the road to wave everyday. Later in my adult years, waiting on Larry ault cumberlands, he remembered my face and told me how seeing me waving was something he looked forward to every day. Something that seemed so minuscule to me as a child, he still remembered 20 something years later. May he rest in peace.
