Leave Condolences

I send my deepest sympathy to the entire Bland Family. Always remember the wonderful times that you spent with Larry. Please find comfort in what the Bible says about the opportunity of seeing our loved one again under the very best of conditions right here on the earth: “There is going to be a resurrection.” Acts 24:15 For more comfort please go to the following website jw.org/en/video-why-study-the-bible and then search for "When Someone You Love Dies" Brochure.

Larry was a true hero. He was selfless in his career to work for better conditions for all. He sacraficed his own time and money to uphold the name of law enforcement in Kentucky. A good man and a huge loss to law enforcement. Thank you Larry for your guidance. I learned alot from you. God bless your family and condolences to our brothers and sisters and the Kentucky State Penitentiary.

Larry Bland was an outstanding friend and teammate at NSU, and a Leader in life. I cherish the time spent with Larry, and will miss our recent phone conversations. I will continue working on Larry's goal of being named to the NSU Hall of Fame, it was Larry's ultimate athletic goal.

PEGGY AND FAMILY , WE LOVE YOU AND LARRY. WE KNOW WHAT A GOOD MAN HE WAS AND HOW MUCH HE LOVED THE LORD. WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE KNOWN HIM. WE WILL KEEP YOU IN OUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS.

Rest in peace, my correctional brother. Thank you for fighting for us via FOP060.
