To the Lawhorne Family,
I was so sorry to learn of Larry�s sudden passing. Reflecting on his life has brought back a flood of fond memories of days gone bye. Larry was one of my closest friends growing up, and we shared many great adventures together in good �ol small town Fernandina. I was so grateful to hear from Larry in later years that he had surrendered his life to the lordship of Jesus Christ.
I offer my deepest condolences to the entire family. May God grant you comfort and peace as you trust in His promises in the midst of your loss and grief.
