Many Memories

My heart goes out to Suzelle and all the Snowden family. It’s hard to believe it was so long ago that we all started out in the Snowden Agency. Life sure has its twists and turns but continues for those left behind. I have always cherished those early memories. Rest in Peace, Larry! Denny is waiting!


Thankful I meet you

From the jump start when I met you, you always helped me when I would call with issues, always called me back. As time went on, I considered a friend. To me you were good man, and I was thankful to know you. I will miss going to the office and seeing a new expensive car in the lot knowing it was yours and asking you about them. I appreciate the good memories for conversations we would have. May the lord bless you and your family.


Thank you, I will miss you

Thank you for being like a grandpa to me and treating me so well, thank you for treating my mom well ,thank you for being you. We will all miss you


I’ll miss you always!

Larry you were one of a kind, you smile and stories always made me laugh. You were/are such an important part of my life. I am blessed to have walked into your office and become part of your State Farm Family all those years ago and all our inside office jokes we had. I will forever treasure the time I had with you. Love you always.
