Our sympathies to the Barnard family. Larry was always ready and willing to help any 4-H kid, even if they belonged to a different club. He had a kind heart and always made a point to say hi to Cody. During the fair this year I caught myself looking over to the bleachers. He will always have a spot on the top bleacher .
