Our deepest sympathy goes out to LaMar and the rest of the Rodgers
family for the tragic loss of Larry. Though we didn't know Larry, Dolly has
served on the Lake Templene board with LaMar for quite a few years. We
pray that you find a way to endure the loss of a son, LaMar, and pray that
the family finds strength in unity at this time of profound sadness.
