Way too much loss in our community in the past weeks.
Larry Sams passed away Jan. 2 at his home. I got to know Larry and his wife Carol when I used to wait on them at the Landing and then Louies’. When they first started coming to Kampsville they had a clubhouse here and spent weekends and vacations. After Larry’s retirement they then purchased a home at Silver Creek and moved to Kampsville. I always looked forward to his smile and he always had to give me a hard time, one of my very favorite customers . Sympathy to his wife Carol and daughters Laura, Deatra and Denise. We will miss seeing him.
