Lee Geist

LeRoy Jutte and I have been friends and co-workers for 15 years, Although I didn't know Donald personally, I knew a son's love for his father through his expressions of love, respect, and admiration. I've heard many stories of their time together, and what LeRoy learned from his father. My deepest condolences are sent to the family at the loss of a great man and an honorable father. May God's blessings be upon all of you.

Mark and Terri Ernst

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Larry family: We are sorry for your loss and rest assured that Jesus, our Lord and Savior, died so that we all may have eternal life. "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39.
