  • I am sorry for your loss.Uncle Larry was such a great man. I will always remember him for all the laughter he gave to everyone. That great big grin on his face as he face lite up when he talked to anyone. I know mom considered him more as her brother than brother in law and im sure they are in heaven together having one of their political debates. He lived such a good and happy long life with the love of his life, Aunt Mona and his family. I was so blessed to call him my favorite, Uncle. We love u all. God bless.

  • Mike and Cathy, I am truly sorry for your loss. I know you have great memories with your dad and as long as you keep those in your heart, he will be with you forever. You have left your memories in my heart and I appreciate your friendship.

  • I am so sorry for your loss.Something that helps me deal with the loss of a loved one is a scripture at Revelation21:4 where it says he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry be anymore the former things have passed away.Wont that be a wonderful time.I hope this scripture can help comfort you.
