Condolence from Marcia Sawyer Bryant on July 7th, 2015 3:55 pm

I first met Larry when I worked with your mom at the “Manteo Motel” when I was in 8th grade. I loved your Mom and she loved all of y’all….Larry was in and out of there all the time. Always a big smile and quite the charmer! He looked out for me many years after that here and there. He was a handful for sure but had a HUGE heart! I know he will be missed.
