    Larry, David, and family,
    It was always a pleasure to visit in your home and know Doris and Larry’s ‘ hospitality, and usually discuss and work on another of Larry’s projects. I have been blessed and inspired to visit and capture some of Larry’s excitement and energy for electronics and amateur radio, and his efforts to make the world a little better by the application of the ingenuity, skill, and dedication with which he is blessed.

    It is so good to read of your TEN YEARS (Oh my! Time flies!) together. I’m sure the “taking care of” went both ways, and how Larry is going to miss Doris. (Bless you all for writing those sweet words above.)

    Larry, I am praying that you will have peace in the days ahead that defies explanation, and a wisdom to know how to fill the vacancy in your heart left by Doris’ going home. Thank you for the lasting impact that you’ve made (and continue to make!) on so many lives in central Texas, including Doris and her family.

    Your friend, and fellow radio operator,

    John AC5JC
