Guestbook

My fondest memory of Larry is all the times that he came to pick me up from home, giving me a ride to run the store for the afternoon or the weekend. It seemed that the short ride from my house to the store took a long time just because Larry was not going to drive too much over 35 mph. Looking back now, those were wonderful rides and I learned a lot about life during those rides. I didn't appreciate it back then as much as I do now. I was young and always wanting to hurry hurry hurry. Now I just want life to slow down, enjoy every moment. I am thankful for everything that Larry and Sybil did for me. I love all of the family so much and pray for comfort. Larry Crenshaw will forever be missed. Love always,Tracy Babb

Micheal and I were talking and remembering Larry. He said he will always remember the way he would tell him, Scott and Tracy bugger bear stories and tell them that the bugger bear was going to get them. Never to scare them, just to have fun with them. He said he remembers he would hold him upside down over the minnow pond. He would really laugh and laugh while he was doing it. He said he always called him Tex. It never failed for Larry to ask about Micheal whenever I saw him. Sybil, Nancy, Fred , Betty Jean , all the grandchildren and family, he was truly a remarkable man and will be surely missed by all. May God be with you all. Love you Janice C Banks
