    I remember all the practical jokes, the card tricks you attempted to teach me & never forget you telling my mother what happens to your belly after midnight. You will be missed my dear friend. I remember how proud you were when I was cutting your hair for your daughter’s graduation. I called your phone today to bring you a greasy cheeseburger. Little did I know that you were already gone. Say hello to my parents. I will miss your laugh the most.

    I remember all the good things Larry did. Two beautiful and successful daughters top the list. Not many can leave that kind of legacy. He had a good heart and willingness to help, thats what I appreciated most.

    Thank you for your service to our country – you volunteered when it was not the popular thing to do. You were a good man with a good heart. You gave us your beautiful daughters – thank you.

    God Bless You.
