To Sister Dorothy & Lazzara Family,

I have thought of you so much over all these years, and have missed being in touch. I&m very sorry to have found your through the passing of your wonderful Larry. I have seen former high school classmates sharing about him this week on Facebook, and he was truly loved. While I didn&t know Larry well myself, I do remember he almost always had a smile on his face.

My heart goes out to you all at this time. I will keep you in my prayers. I wish you comfort.

With love,
Deb Chamberlin

You probably know our vehicles more than our faces, and I am not through TCOB very often, yet you have always been a smiling face and a positive attitude when I come through. I was very saddened to hear of the loss of your husband earlier this week. I did not know him, yet seeing that contributions go to the Almost Humane Society put a smile on my face. We obviously both have a place in our hearts for pets who are in need of a kind hand and a forever homes. Please know that you are thought of at this most difficult time. Thinking of you...

To Larry&s Family:

My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. I graduated high school with Larry and he was my best buddy. We did keep in touch for a bit after he moved to CA, but like many things in life, we lost touch. He was a wonderful guy in school and I know he was an wonderful man.

Again, my heart, thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Barb and Family,
Larry was the nicest person I have ever met in my entire life! Not only was he the best at what he did professionally, he was the best at being a friend.

There was not a time when we spoke that he did not mention a member of his family....he loved you all so very much!

He will be truly truly missed, but he will live in my heart and in hearts of many for the rest of our lives.

Thank you for sharing your husband and father/grandfather with me and my family!

God Bless,
Kathy and Jeff Good
and Family

We were so saddened to hear of Larry&s passing. We feel lucky to have had the chance to meet him while he was painting our house in WL a few weeks back. He was a kind man with a wonderful spirit. He spoke of his entire family often during our talks (especially the grandchildren)- with such love and devotion. He loved you all very much and made it known. Our thoughts are with your family.

Larry will be sorely missed. He was always friendly and helpful. We enjoyed his smile and his laughter. Larry did a lot of painting for us over the years. He could always be depended upon. He spoke of his love of family often. So very sorry for your loss. Chris and Phil

GOD LOOKED AROUND HIS GARDEN

HE THEN LOOKED DOWN UPON THE EARTH
ANS SAW YOUR PRECIOUS FACE

HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU
AND LIFTED YOU TO REST;
GOD&S GARDEN MUST BE BEAUTIFUL
HE ALWAYS TAKES THE BEST,

HE CLOSED YOUR WEARY EYELIDS
AND HE WHISPERED ""PEACE BE THINE""
THEN HE TOOK YOU UP TO HEAVEN
WITH HANDS SO GENTLE AND KIND

IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOSE YOU
BUT YOU DID NOT GO ALONE,
FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY GOD WELCOMED YOU HOME.

I will never forget Larry and all he did for me ,,, words cannot begin to express my sorrow. My deepest sympathy to you, Barb and the entire family.

Hi Babs and family,

I did so want to be there with you, just to be there. I had such wonderful talks with Larry on the phone. He and I made each other laugh so much.

There are NO words to comfort you, I know. We are just two more people wanting to tell you how very much we love and cherish you, and send the warmest of hugs to you every minute and every hour.

You and I will take Manhattan, one of these days.

Remain strong, my darling. You and Larry had a wonderful time.

xoxo
