    Uncle Larry was my favorite Uncle! I wish my kids and grandkids could have met him! He always had a huge smile, a joke, and plenty of laughter . When I was little, I was afraid of his hand, ( he had lost a couple fingers in a wreck) so he always caught me and gave me "Noogies" with it! Didn't take me long to realize, that hand had more love in it, then a lot of people have on their whole body! I will never forget his dog, he named CAT! IT WAS GORGEOUS!! I don't remember ever seeing him without that huge smile on his face!! LOVE TO MY UNCKE LARRY, YOU MAY LEAVE THIS EARTH, BUT YOU WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS LIVE IN MY HEART AND MEMORIES!! REST IN PEACE WITH MOMMA, UNCLE BUD, AND UNCLE SONNY AT YOUR SIDE!! LOVE AND PRAYERS, FOR ALL OF HIS KIDS, GRANDKIDS, AND GREAT GRANKIDS and LOVED ONES! THIS AMAZING, WONDERFUL, KIND MAN WILL TRUELY BE MISSED! 💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖

    It is often hard to find the right words at a time like this. May you all find peace, comfort, and all the love you need in the days to come. Special note to my dear sister Terri: Take time to sit in silence. Open your heart and mind to God’s presence. Listen for His still small voice. He will give you comfort, peace and guidance through this next chapter of your life. Love always and forever! -Toni
