From Debra C Shirar...

Holly and Larry, My deepest sympathy for your loss. It has been a long time since I have had contact with you.
The first thing I thought of Holly was the Jayhawk you drew for me with the untied shoes. Larry you were just 100% young boy. You had a big heart though for your sister and she did for you at Woodlawn.
I am common law married to a North Lawrence “kid”. Jerry Longfellow. We have been together since 2003.
My thoughts, prayers and virtual hugs are with you. I know you will have God’s arms wrapped around you now too.
Much love, Debbie Shirar
