Dear family: I wish I could attend the celebration today but I'm out of town. Not only would I liked to see each of you but I'd liked to have heard more stories. I always said that the nursing home was my second home/family. Thanks for sharing Larry with us and making memories. Hugs to each of you. In friendship, Charlotte

We are sorry to learn of Larry's death. We look forward to seeing him alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection." John 5:28, 29

Larry, my pops, you are going to be greatly missed. You were a part of my life and riley's life for so very long and we couldn't have asked for better. Our hearts are broken to learn of your passing, but you are in a better place and no longer in pain. I will always remember the many laughs and stories and jokes we shared. You were and always will be my pops. Riley and I both love you so very much. Rest easy pops.
