September here now and your'e gone 6 months. I watched you last night in Metal of Honor. So wonderful to see u again, so proud of you, so proud to have been your wife. You had so much more to give back to our world, why were you taken so young? Maggie and I will visit the Museum at some point when it opens and will always keep you in our hearts when we see your Hard Hat I donated to be displayed at Ground Zero... You have officially made history now.Still, I would do anything to have you back with us.

This year is a first everything for us without you here. So, Happy Father's Day to the greatest most devoted Father, ever! You are so missed...
Sometimes when I think of you I find solace in the way you passed. "Like a Fallen Angel." It is exactly how you wanted to go. That's what you told me in your living years and God was listening. That is really the only thing that gives me any peace about you leaving. You even died with class, isn't that what you would've said? I miss your sense of humor but it will always be with me in memory and in my heart.

Honey, there isn't a day that goes by that I live without you. Always with me every thing I do everywhere I go......
I recently received this anonymous note from one of your "Brother Ironworkers" that I want to share. He writes:
"Till we meet again, Brother, may you rest in peace. Your loyalty, love of, and protection of this Brotherhood inspires me always.
with Deepest love and utmost love
Fly -40
Whoever you are know that I will always cherish your words because you have totally captured his essence.
I love you and always will,Hammer.
your wife,

Anna and family,
I just learned of Larry's passing and wanted to send my condolences. My husband, Jim Campbell, and I worked Larry and Local 40. Larry brought such stability to his job and to those he helped. Sadly, my husband passed away last October and I understand your sorrow. You are in my thoughts.
