Rey fondly remember kuya Larry’s generous heart & time. Whenever we are in any gathering , kuya Larry will surely sit beside Rey. & they chat & laugh non stop. Rey never had an older brother, kuya Larry became his big brother. We cannot forget him & his generosity even with little things like candies or snacks, his dedication to his family esp his grand babies, he is such an inspiration to us, as younger couples. We love him & we will miss him dearly! But we know he is with Jesus now,! Thank you kuya Larry for reminding us Psalm 09:12 “ Teach is Lord, to number our days, so we may gain a heart of wisdom!” ❤️

Larry was the kind of person everyone loved. More importantly he loved everyone. I never saw him when he wasn't smiling and happy to visit and talk. I can't remember a time when his attitude was anything but upbeat. Devout and a great family man. He will be missed by all who knew him. Gone but never forgotten. Our sorrow is tempered by the fact that he now resides in the Kingdom of Heaven!
