I'll never forget your look what I found this morning as you drop a baby snake in my hand and made me jump out the passenger side of my truck. Larry you was such a kind hearted ,and gentle man. You scooped me up in your arms as you found me one night took me to your house and made sure I slept and wiped the blood away. That day i had a mini hot shot and was hitting everyone with it you saw me a coming and thought you was next lol u jumped in the air and took off running saying not me lol i never thought of touching you with it. I have a million memories with you. I loved you like a dad. U was the one person I could always count on being there if i needed you. I love you my friend i will truly miss you.

I was a young teenager when I first met Larry... He became a good friend not only to myself but also my elderly mother and father.... Who he treated with the utmost respect....
He will be greatly missed... I'll always hold dear your memory and very thankful for how well you treated my parents while I was away...
Fly high brother....

Larry, I never got the chance to know you as a brother, I came into this family quite late in our lives. Sorry I did not take the time to build a relationship with you. We will get to see each other again, Rest in peace. Love. Wendy
