My sincere condolences to all family and friends. Larry was a great person to work with and I enjoyed my interaction with him while working at Facet.

Lorraine, Theodore, Timothy and Family:

My deep prayers and thoughts are with you during the loss of Larry. I have known Larry about 3-4 years, through the First United Methodist Church and including the United Methodist Men within the church. He will be extremely missed from all within the church - including myself. Words that pop in my head when thinking of Larry, include - kindness, caring, willing to help anyone and thinking of others before himself. His passion for the Prayer Memorial made it happen – from concept to his vision underway. His legacy will continue to grow it and know he will be looking down onto the church.

With much Christian love to you and your family,

John Young

To the Cobb Family:

Words, however kind, can't mend your heartache, but those that care; share your loss and wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and warmth in the embrace of friends. And may you find comfort in the fact that this is not goodbye for good, but rather goodbye for now for we all go home eventually. The Howe Family
