    Our heartfelt condolences to Karen and the rest of Larry’s family. We met Larry in Texas several years ago and have a kinship because of our mutual Finnish nationalities and connection to Upper Michigan. Saw many things in Texas together and enjoyed his and Karen’s company. Will miss his stories, personality, and kindness. Mike and Margaret L
