    Dear Davis Family,

    Larry was our friend and brother in the Lord. He will forever be remembered for his faithfulness. Before Larry got sick he was at every Bible study and service we had at Calvary Baptist. He will truly be missed. You are in our prayers and in our thoughts, Love Pastor Loop on behalf of the church family at CBC.

    To the Davis Family,

    We will all miss Larry a great deal. He always had keen insight at our Bible studies. And he was an honest, gentle, good person. I always enjoyed our post service chats. He loved God and his Word.


    Rich Gibbons and family.

    Larry is the best brother in law I could have ever hoped for and I will miss him very much. He was a beloved member of our family and we learned a great deal from Larry about the importance of family and faith. Larry, you will be missed by all and so many people loved you. You are our hero. Love always, Carol

    My Cousin Larry was more like a brother to me than a cousin. I have many fond and funny memories of him and will treasure them in my heart until we meet again. I learned a lot from Larry about the importance of spending time with family. I will miss his company at our dinner table on Thanksgiving and Easter. We look forward to the day when we will be reunited with him. Well done, good and faithful servant. You were much loved by us. Katherine & Scott
