Larry was a very sociable person he never went without a smile. He loved collecting coins, and baseball cards. He worked many different places, including Save-Mor, Mountaineer Mart, C & S Gas “Charlies” and retired after 20 years from Grafton Wal-mart. But his greatest achievement in life was accepting Jesus Christ as his Savior
What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see, and I look upon his face, the one who saved me by his grace, when he takes he by the hand, and leads me through the Promised Land, what a day, glorious day that will be.
There’ll be no sorrows there, no more burdens to bear, no more sickness and no more pain, no more parting over there, but forever I will be, with the one who died for me, what a day, glorious day that will be.
What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see, when I look upon his face, the one who saved me by his grace.
In honor of Larry’s request cremation will be honored.
