Condolence: Having just lost a parent, I am sensitive to the grieving for the empty place left in our hearts. Yet, as a friend of Vickie's, I know how beloved and cared for Mr. Downing was, and what a tremendous family he had. God bless you all in your time of loss.
Prayers and Cares,
Condolence: Babe was not only Larry and my neighbor during our younger years, he was my grandmothers neighbor. Larry felt he was a mentor to him when he was little and when he worked at Bliss.
He was a great man, who will be missed by a great many people.
To all his family, I am sorry for your loss.
