  8. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Larry and his family lived south of us when we lived in the Greenwood Community as well. My maiden name is Gehring and my parents knew Ruth and Lyle. My late husband, Bill, would visit with Larry at the Cottage Inn over a cup of coffee. I know he will be missed. Again, I am so sorry to hear of this horrible loss of your loved one. Just keep the memories – love and support from family and friends will see you through. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
