The first time I met Larry was at the hospital on the loop. We had just moved in. I was in medical records and he in maintenance. I called him to the office and his first words were "A brand new hospital and you have already broken something." We have been friends ever since. I was delighted when you and Larry joined Springlake and we have been blessed to worship together ever since. I pray God to give your grace and faith to begin being without the love of your life. It is hard but with God, family,, friends and church family you can do this.
