Memories Timeline


  1. To all of the family and friends, Just to tell you we are going to miss Larry..We will be praying for the family and friends…Larry is not suffering any more..Love and caring, Pete and Ronnie Cole

  2. Vic: I was sorry to see where your dad had passed away. Doesn’t seem like it has been that long since I saw you at Kim’s funeral. Please know that you & your family are in my prayers & my thoughts. I had met Larry a few times but it has been years since I saw him. I lost my dad in 1986 & it still seems like yesterday. Death is a difficult thing to go through for those left behind but if you know the Lord He’ll wrap you in His loving arms & give you strength to meet each day. He gives new grace & mercy everyday. It is my prayer that you climb up in Jesus’s lap & lean on Him in these difficult days ahead. You & your family will be in my thoughts & prayers. May God bless you in the days ahead. I’m Clara’s friend in case you forgot me. I’ll be praying that God will give you strength. He will if you’ll turn to Him.

  3. Mushy’ we love you and always will…we will meet again one day.Great friends are hard to come by and I will probably never have another friend like you.
    We just want to say that Larry will truly be missed by all that knew him. You always had the same personality no matter what was going on or when we seen you.
    And to the family and life long friends; God gives you the strength to do all things through him. He is the only one that can truly help you through these difficult times.

My love and prayers to all who loved Larry..In Christ’s service, Pat
