There will be a get together to remember Larry at noon June 7 at Pioneer Park in Albert Lea.

Sometime afterwards Larry’s ashes will be taken out to the farmland that he grew up on where they will be spread so that Larry can run and ride with the horses once again.

Larry was preceded in death by his wife, Karen; his father, Leo Whelan and his niece, Alyssa.
