    Remembering our dear brother in law and uncle with great fondness and thankfulness. We will never forget how thoughtful and kind Larry was to us during my husband’s illness. He was there with many visits, calls and taxi rides. We also have special memories of family get togethers. Larry’s gentle teasing, great smile and conversations about trips and dogs made for a very fun time. My son, Curtis, has special memories about when he took a photography class and Larry shared his knowledge and equipment too. My husband and Curtis also had fun doing projects at the Wanzer’s beautiful home under Larry’s supervision. Larry was a wonderful man and we look forward to a get together in heaven. With love and sympathy, Kim, Brittany and Curtis Harkins

    I’m happy to have spent some time with Uncle Larry at a recent birthday party at his home with family. He also took my high school senior photos and others over the years. Uncle Larry will be missed.
