We lost a good one today, folks. Larry Childers was the kind of man who knew everyone. He made friends easily. Mr. Larry was an impeccable dresser. He had style. He had heart. He had a tolerance for mankind. Sit by him at a party and he would tell the best stories and the funniest jokes.
He believed in being involved. He supported others and his community. You could see him on any given day, at the courthouse where he worked. He loved God, Family and Country. He had a passion for politics. You could see him at any and every election working the polls.
Larry was a Godly man. A family man. A friend to all who knew him. A military, man who served this great country.
I can share that in several of my conversations with Mr. Larry, we often got on the subject of spirituality and the afterlife. A topic that is taboo to many for fear of big debates. I don't know why we discussed this....perhaps because we shared similar beliefs. But those chats with him today bring me comfort. I can only imagine the great celebration in Heaven at his arrival.
To Mr. Larry, you will be greatly missed and never forgotten. Your memory will live on in the many, many lives you touched.
To my dear friend, "the Boss" (Larry's Daughter) and Mama Joy (His Wife) and all of Larry's Family, I know you must feel the love and support that this community that Larry has loved so long, reciprocated. I will continue to lift you in prayer now and in the months to come.
I love you.
