All the family dinners with the adults playing cards. So glad we all got to vacation together last October...wonderful memories. Love to you all. Keep the good memories close to your heart to get you through this difficult time. Love, April and Dennis

    Our condolences to the family.  We knew Larry from bowling league.  He was a great bowler and an even greater person.  We will miss him greatly.

    All of us Mahlstedt children (Marie & Willis's) are saddened at the news of Larry's death!  We had a lot of great times as cousins and fond memories of Waterloo visits.  Our farm was the sight of lots of 4th of July firecrackers!!! We all enjoyed the Hawkeyes together!!!! I dont think any of us will make the visitation or funeral,  but our thoughts and prayers are with your family!

     

    God's blessings
