Sandy and Larry"s Family, I am sorry to hear of Larry passing. I have many fine memories of time spent with Larry & Ed. I remember when Larry had a red "62" Chevy Impala hardtop that I thought was quite nice. Larry was a great person.

Cousin Huey was someone who just always made you smile, or giggle. It's been MANY years since last I saw him, but our childhoods were all mingled together, as cousins often are. There are only Happy memories of him, and All of the Knepp family! Happy Journey Huey....

Larry was a kind and gentle man, he and his family were great neighbors and friends and babysitters for my son Sean for many years. He mowed my Cindy's yard and refinished some furniture for her as well. A kind man with awesome sense of humor who loved his girls.
