  1. I offer all members of the Larsson Fsmily my deepest sympathy on your loss. George was slways a wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather, friend and mason. I have known him since I was just a young lad. He was great friends with my parents. He always lived what he was taught as a master mason. May he rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him now and always.
