    So very sorry to hear of the passing of Larry. I worked with him close to 30 years on the August Bluegrass Festival. He and Dolores hosted so many of our Festival Staff meetings. Most of the signs you see at MBOTMA were made by Larry. We all loved him dearly, a part of our MBOTMA family. Sympathies and Prayers to all the family.

    • Vicki Fischer says:

      Thank you Jana. I know how much he enjoyed working on the signs. Both of my parents loved being a part of the MBOTMA family.
