So sorry to hear about Mr. Warner. Great memories from Junior High when he was the big, scary Asst. Principal. Luckily for me, the time I spent his office was just to chat. 🙂 His door was always open. Dad and I were talking about him and Mrs. Warner tonight, and he was laughing and reminiscing about old times. My condolences to the family. Take solace in knowing he’s at peace now and be comforted by the wonderful memories. Love and prayers from the Armstrong Family.

I was very sorry to hear about Larry’s passing. He was such a wonderful Christian man. I had the privilege of knowing Larry as a fellow member of Ninth & Elm Church of Christ and Fellowship Church of Christ in Orange Tx. He was a great song leader and worked very hard in leading singing in the services. He was always an inspiration. Larry was easy to talk with and just a really fine person. I want to extend my condolences to all of Larry’s family and to let you know I am praying for you at this time.

Death brings pain that time can only heal,
No words could ease what we truly feel;
But with God, his joy is eternally sealed,
And cherish his memories that death can’t even steal.
Lift up a smile for he is already in the paradise
