Dear Mrs. Vogler, Linda, Terry, Gary & Larry, You have my sincerest condolences. I have many fond memories as a neighbor in my early childhood. I also had the opportunity to visit with him a few times in the last couple of years. No matter what, he always had that “great smile” and was always kind-hearted. He certainly will be missed by me and many others. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
