Judy, you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Red was a great man and I am so happy to have known him. I have so many great memories from the Ross County fairs of old that included him. What a huge loss for the whole Ross County community but especially 4-H.

So sorry to hear of Red leaving us. Such a surprise! He'll be missed by everyone and especially us from the old 4-H group and Horse Bowl teams. Lots of fond memories spending time practicing, showing, and trail riding with the horses with Red; not to mention the fair.

Condolences, Judy!!

Judy, I was so sorry to hear about Larry. I throughly enjoyed every visit with the both of you when you’d come to the office, from cattle, horses, the PBR, to the buffet, and who was going to be luckier you or Larry “Red”, to chatting about Dad and Cindy. When you’d both leave the office, I’d have a happier heart and smile for days! You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Aunt Judy,
It has been over 2 weeks since my Uncle Larry left earth and entered Heaven. He is with my dad, Wayne, his brother, and with Grandma & Grandpa Morrison. I am sorry this message is late. So much has happened, and with traveling back and forth from Florida now twice, I just didn't have time to send a message. I will greatly miss Uncle Larry. He was my last connection to my dad here on earth. I loved getting to spend time with you both, although brief because I live so far away. Thank you so much for traveling to Samantha's wedding in 2013, it met so much to her to have that connection to her Grandpa Wayne. We should all take a lesson from Uncle Larry on how to live our lives, make lots of friends, be a friend to many, always have a smile, and never meet a stranger. The items I have that my Uncle Larry made for me will always be treasured.
Love You, Aunt Judy,
Susan Morrison Ferrell
