  1. We were very saddened to learn of Larry’s passing this September We are the Barbour/Burke family that purchased his Hilliard Frontage Rd property in 2017. At this very sad time, we thought it might give you some peace to know how very much we have enjoyed the property, & is busy & chaotic all summer long with family. We didn’t know Larry much more than just to make the purchase transaction, but he had expressed his hope that whoever bought the place would enjoy it as much as he & his wife had. And I believe we have lived up to that hope/expectation! There were a few random items that Larry left behind, & we have done our best to incorporate them into the property to date…some that quickly come to mind are 4 big ceramic planters that we plant every year on the deck & also use to hold our tiki torches, some painted rocks I assume were done by grandkids are now tucked into my own rockery & nooks around the yard. The swing just off to the side of the gazebo still brings peals of laughter from the kids, & his wind chime still hangs outside the sliding doors onto the deck in honor of Larry. At any rate, we just wanted to express our sincere condolences to the family, & while nothing stays the same, life is ever changing & unfolding, we have countless times sat on the deck, enjoying the sunset, murmuring “thank you, Larry” May he Rest In Peace, & be forever held dear in your hearts.
