We were looking forward to meeting the family in Florida next week at our Army reunion. Larry was an infantryman with Alpha 2/35 who went on to work with me as an RTO. Recently, Terry Savely went to great efforts to find Larry. The three of us had planned to reunite next week after a 35 year separation. I will say a prayer for a good soldier tonight. Larry, we continue to miss you. "CACTI FOREVER"

I was waiting for Larry to come to Thomasville. We had served together in Viet Nam. I had trained him to take my place with A/35th, when I left to go to the Tactical Operations Center(TOC). I had not heard from him for over 35 years. He called about a month ago and we were re-united. He was to travel to my city and spend the night, and we were to go to the Cacti Re-union with all the others we had served with. I had only heard his voice a few times and I already miss him. I was looking foward to our time together. My God Bless his family and his Memory. He will be missed, but now never forgotten. Smitty

Larry was a very good friend of mine while serving in Viet Nam. Speaking for all of his friends from the 2nd battalion 35th Infantry we are so happy we were in touch with him for the past few months. He will always be in our memories as a a true freind and a true "CACTI BLUE" soldier. Once again, we miss him. ts
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Marie & Family, We visited you on the morning of 7/14. I was in Vietnam with Larry. I'm so glad I got to visit with him and share memories and meet you, Stacy, John, and the grandkids and hear about all the rest of the family. How proud you must be of all the kids. We will pray for God to bring you comfort and peace in your time of sorrow.
