  1. So very sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. He always called me the “rockin doc” I always tried to have his beloved Mozart on the radio when he was in the office. Such a great family–the Grahams! We still go to Lampost Pizza regularly. With love and very fond rememberances..The Cowans

  2. I am greatly saddened to read of Laryy’s passing. I always enjoyed Larry’s visits with me in the office over many years- he first came to see me in 1994. His attitude was invariable positive with a dilightful wry humor. I will miss him as will you. Sincerely, Lawrence W. Kneisley MD Torrance, CA

  3. Please accept mine and Wilson’s condolences at this time of sorrow in your life. I cared for Larry’s mother here in Broadway (Vir) and felt as part of the family. After the departure of Lowell I did not have Larry’s address and lost touch. I am so sorry that I did not know he was so sick. I missed out on a lot of years of hearing about his family. He was always so funny when down here. Please know that our prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. May the Lord’s strength keep you strong at this time. Love from Wilson & Cynthia Myers

  4. Dear Laurel, George, James, & Kate, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I’m not sure if you remember me or not, but I use to babysit for George and James when they were little. May our LORD and Savior comfort you at this time. You are in my prayers. Love and a hug, Rita

  5. Our deepest sympathy goes to Larry’s family from my husband and me. I was in high school and church with Larry, Lowell, and Jann and remember fondly all the good times we had in our youth group. I have not seen any of them since Mr. Graham’s death, but I have thought of the family often. May God give you peace. (Mollie) Sims Cheek Poindexter
