Carolyn and family. My heart is with you today as you have released Larry to his heavenly home. I'm so sorry. The pain seems unbearable and the path becomes very steep and rocky as you proceed along the way, However, God is with you every step of that way. Lean into HIM and let His love and comfort come to you through all those who will love on you and give you hugs. I can only imagine how it is to stand face to Face with our Lord. Love you!! XOXOX
