Dear Brother, you will be missed more than you know. I love you with all my heart and will miss your smile at every family function or gathering. You always made an effort to attend everything no matter where it was even though many times it was inconvenient because you were always working so much. I know that Mom was waiting for you with open arms but our arms are empty now. Just wish I could hug you one more time and give you a big kiss. You will never be forgotten. Please say hello to Ken and little sis Judy. Until we meet again, you enjoy heaven.

There hasn't been a death in our family since my Father in Law, that hits me as hard as this. Uncle Larry was one of my favorite people on Earth. He was the Best Man at my wedding. He's touched more lives than he could ever know. Here on Earth it's a little dimmer and Heaven's a little brighter...RIP Uncle Larry...and KNOW...you WERE and STILL ARE...BELOVED!
