Larry never lived at the HDC but was employed at the facility for many years before he turned 65.

The family would like to thank HDC and ManorCare for their support, love and care which made Larry’s life as fulfilling and dignified as possible, in spite of the challenges that each day brought throughout his adult life. We are especially grateful to Heartland Hospice for keeping Larry as comfortable as possible in his final days on Earth.
