    I’m sorry to hear of Larry’s and Terry’s deaths. I’m Larry’s adopted son, David Adams. I’m happy to know he and Ann stayed together all those years. I hope Terry’s short life had more joys than sadnesses. I’m sorry for Gary’s losses. You were a good, protective older brother; but who, like any older sibling, also enjoyed teasing me sometimes. I loved Luce and Papaw, and have often thought of them through the years.
    Be at peace,
    David Adams

    Larry was one of the greatest friends to both Chuck and I during our time at Lake Cypress Springs. He and Chuck were best friends and loved working in the garage and telling tall tales. One of my favorite times of each day was when Larry and another friend, Jim, would come down and have coffee with Chuck and I each morning, rain or shine, and we would have our morning devotions together. Larry always had questions…..and we loved exploring the answers to those questions.

    He and I had many deep and interesting conversations about EVERYTHING while digging holes for azaleas….nailing siding up on the house…..painting walls and cleaning the garage after our flood. There just wasn’t a better friend than Larry.

    I am confident he is in the arms of our Savior right this moment……
