Larry, how much we love you! I have known you all your life, and you have always been such a special person. . . you were so trustworthy and honest. How glad we are that you found Elaine, you deserved a special wife like her. Please give Uncle Harvey a big hug for me, and let him know I miss him. Loving you always, Aunt Margaret

I will miss our discussions of Civil War history and the "gun talk" about the weapons from that time period... all the updates on the work on the 'ol Ford... seeing your eyes light up when you saw little Mason and Gracie... Seeing Eddie curled up on your lap and watching you slip roast beef to him under the table... all the stick houses you painstakingly and masterfully created... and the kindness and concern you had for all of us. I watched you struggle with your disease but never wavering in your concern about Elaine and what the future would hold for her in your absence. I'll never forget the thoughtful gifts you carefully selected for each of us during the holidays... including the civil war replica Seydel harmonica that I will always cherish. Most of all, I look forward to taking Noah and Mason fishing with their last Christmas gift from you and Grandma Elaine. I love you Larry... We'll see you on the river when those boys cast their new rods from grandma and grandpa!

Dad thank you for being there, raising my siblings and me. I am grateful I was able to spend those precious moments when I visited you and when you came to Arizona to see me. Most of all I thank you for just being a loving Grandfather to my son- loving and holding him even if it was just for a short time. (7 months old at time of passing) I most thank full of all the teachings you passed to me, remembering all those Father/Son moments. I will pass them to my young son! We will miss you, but you will never forgotten. Moments will be in a time capsule at Our Family Values website.

Larry was one of the kindest people I'v ever know. It was so nice having Larry as my Big Brother, he was my friend & protector as we grew up. He was a good man who loved his wife Elaine and family with all his heart and I know he'll be watching over us and he'll still be protecting us. He was so brave and never let on that he was suffering, I'm happy that he's not in pain anymore but I miss him so much. I Love you Larry!
