  5. Mr. Larry and I had a good business relationship, but really more than business, I called him a friend. I remember us talking about his health situation and realized how strong his faith was. He knew this was his temporary home. He is where he wanted to be for his eternal home because Jesus saved him. Our condolences to the family.
