    Wilma, We were saddened to hear of Larry's Passing. But we do give praise unto Christ For his mercy and love Larry received this past year or so. His desire to know and live for Jesus was seen in his testimony while in Greenville hospital. Even though Larry never got the chance to come back and give his testimony in church he sure told it in the hospitals and nursing homes. Praise God! We love you and are praying for you. In Christ, Bro. Al and Sis. Linda Leggett
