    I am having trouble with words. Although I live many states away now, I thought I’d see you again, my friend. I wanted to tell you how incredible the kindness that you always showed to me was, and through all of life’s ups and downs those years we worked together, your friendship was so valuable and cherished. The love and pride you had for your family was beautiful, and your kindness, generosity and loyalty made your friends very lucky to have you. Thank you for all of the great hunting advice too 🙂 You will be so missed by so many.

    Try to remember the good times as this will help you in your loss.

    Larry, Although we didn’t stay in touch most of our adult years, your mom always kept me up to date with what you were up to. I have missed that connection and all the, sometimes goofy, but always heartwarming stories she shared with me about the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Larry was a great person and neighbor! He always stopped and chatted with me when I was out walking or getting the mail. Always let me know where the fish were biting! I miss his laugh already. My thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.

    Anyone that has had children in the St. Michael-Albertville School District knows how fortunate we were to have Larry driving our children to school activities. He took special care of my son Logan when he drove him to Wright Technical Center. All of the students loved him and he will be greatly missed! He owned my grandmother’s home and I was always trying to get him to sell me her old outhouse! He would always laugh and say, “I can’t, I might need it someday!”

  14. Carrie Halderson Kolasa
