I moved up to Washington from California in the summer of 1979. It was supposed to be for a year so I could get to know you Dad beings you and mom went separate ways when I was in diapers. There were things I would over hear of conversations between aunts, uncles, grandparents and mom. And occasionally my older siblings and mom. I never got, OR asked for the whole story and at the time didn't really matter to me for whatever the reason.
Until I did move up to Washington to live with you. After several months and after we moved into the house in Maltby, that question started burning inside of me..... and one day, on a weekend, I rode with you into town to take care of some arends you had. About half way into town that burning question finally made its way out.

Dad, what happened between you and mom?
And you clenched your teeth and looked out your driver side window as if you were thinking.. mmm there's that question.
You looked out the window for a brief moment and then turned to me and said...
"Son, whatever you may have heard, that IS the way it was."

That wasn't the answer I was expecting or was looking for.
But it was, without question, the answer I needed.
It didn't tell me what happened. It told me what kind of man my father was.
An Honest man. A Man who took responsibility for things he's done, or hasn't done. Even though some of those things may not have been true or correct. You had no possible way of knowing what I was, or wasn't told. But you accepted responsibility for it nonetheless. Only a Real Man would do such a thing. That is something that I will never forget, and something I will always be proud of.
I am, have always been and forever will be proud to be your son.
I hope that you were aware of that.
I love you Dad. And I miss you.

Larry was truly a special friend that we came to love and respect and life will not be the same without him. Years ago my husband and I started a relief mission across the world. When Larry heard that we were needing funds for the Philippines he wanted to get involved. Larry’s generosity helped with the education of four boys. He also helped with medical expenses of a boy with kidney disease. That young man is now a minister. He never asked for a donation receipt or recognition, he just gave, that’s who Larry was. Because of Larry’s giving heart there are people across this world that have a better life and many have accepted the Lord as their Savior. Larry taught us that no matter the circumstances we can each do our part for God. Goodnight dear Larry, we will see you soon when Jesus returns and calls you to come forth from your resting place. What a reunion that will be when we all gather together on that Sea of Glass!

Larry was such a kind and gentle man and loved Jesus very much. He had also became an elder in the church and ministered with such love and comfort. He stood firm in what he believed and yet was as gentle as a lamb.

Oh Larry, you were my fiance and best friend. I love and miss you so, but I have the hope of seeing you again on Resurrection Morning when Jesus comes. May we ALL be comforted by that thought. We had such wonderful times together. I just can't say which was the best times. They were all great and we just enjoyed each other whenever we were together either dining out, going to church, or taking a drive.

To all Larry's family members: I'm so glad I have you all in my life too. I love you and thanks for loving me too and welcoming me into your wonderful family. You are in my thoughts and prayers for comfort from God.

I love you and will always miss you grandpa, I remember amazing family dinners as a child and will not forget that finger that seemed like you were getting hit with a two by four across the forhead when I would say a swear word.

I will always remember those great huge family dinners. I was too young to really remember anything but I do remember that his hugs were always warm and that I LOVED his stories. Will always cherish the times I had with my great grandfather. May he rest in peace..
