The day you brought me home, was very special. You picked me, the runt of the liter.
I grew so attached to Pearl because you had Buddy the dog. Then Buddy got old and had to leave us. You were so sad and missed him so much, I decided to try and comfort you. We became insepreatble. I followed you everywhere and slept by your back side or under you arm pit. The day you left us, I was nervous didnt know what was happening. I looked for you all over the house. I waited by the door waiting for you to come home. I miss the table scraps you would give me and the special treat when mom wasn't looking. I know now my job is to try and be a comfort to mama, she misses you very much. I know now that my job is to comfort her. Love you Papa,
The princess of the house

Larry and I met while serving in the 55APS reserve. We got to know each other while on Annual Tour in the Philippine. He And I became very good friends since then. I was honored, when Pearl invited my wife and I to Larry’s Retirement party in Reno. We all had a great time swapping war stories about his life as a police officer and as a Reservist.

Larry and I served together at Travis Air Force Base in the 82nd Aerial Port Squadron
We were on Annual Tour together at Hickam Air Fore Base Hawaii in 1999
Larry was the Team Chief and I was the Assistant Team Chief
I remember when Larry retired from the Air Force Reserves. On his way out the door he handed me a cardboard box with some of his Air Force Manuals in it. He said it is your time to lead. I will never forget that moment
The picture is from our Annual Tour in Hawaii
It was taken at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific located at Punchbowl Crater in Honolulu

I remember well when Pearl and Larry came to visit Vi in Cape. It was such a special time and I remember thinking how very beautiful you are Pearl and what a strong presence Larry was and how much he resembled big Eddie. I'm sure he always made you feel safe. Praying your sweet memories carry you all through the hard days. Much love, Colleen

Larry was a man that would do things his own way and to the best of his ability. Being my brother we spent a lot of time together and always having fun, whether it was playing Jenga, Dominos or the trips to RENO, or VEGAS, YOSEMITE , or just camping it was an adventure. He will be missed.

I met Larry when he and I joined the Air Force Reserves at Travi AFB, in 1982. We became the best of friends. We went on a few two week active duty tours together and being roommates. Larry had a sense of humor, Always pulling pranks on me. One time, we had our own rooms and a common living area. Larry was able to access my room, taking all the lightbulbs out and hiding them, plus "short sheeting" my bed!
One of my active duty stints, Larry asked me to have a painting of his father made from a photo he had. I naturally obliged. Also had a leather motorcycle jacket made for him too.
Larry was my best friend in the Reserves and when I was able to talk him, week before last, he told me with his strained voice, that I was his best friend. That touched and humbled me. I told him, he was my best friend too.
I know that God is blessing him and he is in good hands now and in no pain and sorrow.
May the good Lord bless Larry,
Take care my friend,
your buddy, Don
