  1. Wonderful, wonderful web-site dear friends. Your blog Larry hit the right spot this morning after awakening. Kay we love you both and are so proud of what you both have done and are doing for Him.

    1. Arlene, so wonderful to hear from you. Kay and I have really felt God calling us to write, so we cleared the deck of all responsibilities and busy work, and have dedicated this year to writing. We think of you and Russell often, hope you both are doing well. Thank you for your encouragement. Larry

  2. Kay,
    I just found your website and look forward to reading your messages. I remember your sweet Mother as secretary for Mr. Howard and seeing her in the band hall as I was in the orchestra. I am so proud of both of you and the work you have done for God’s kingdom. I look forward to reading your messages as well as Larry’s. Hope to see you at our 50th reunion. I am on facebook. Let me know when you publish any books. I am in a neighborhood bible study and we review books in one of our church organizations. May God bless you both for the work you are doing. I am sorry I didn’t know you lived in Tampa for several years. My sister, Elizabeth Frankland, lived in Tampa for about 40 years. However, she died of mesothelioma almost 3 years ago. I had ovarian cancer 11 years ago as of TODAY and am feeling fine. I feel God still has plans for my life. Marsha Talley – I still live in Temple.

  3. Larry, Your messages come at the right times in my life…every time. Thank you and Kay for your obedience to promote God’s kingdom and values, writing with such wisdom and faith. May God bless you both. Peace and love, Priscilla
