Dear Linda and family;
I am so sorry to hear of Larry&s passing. Last I had read, he was doing great so this is pretty "sudden" to me. I am sure he is cuddling with Heidi and Crosby right now. My love to you and your family. Big hugs sent to you. I am so sorry!

To all of Larry Underhill&s Family; I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. As a WL City Police Officer; I would stop at both fire stations to visit and Larry was one of my favorite. Also Larry, would stop in at the Halleck Federal Building downtown and would stop at our command center to visit with us. Will always remember his big smile and his calm nature. I will think of him often and will miss him. I pray that the good Lord has given him eternal rest and peace and all of you are in my prayers. The last time that I saw Larry, was August 01 thru August 15, 2008. I have retired and moved to FL.

Dear Linda,

It was so good to see you and Louann tonight; brought back a lot of happy memories. I enjoyed seeing the picture collage of Larry and especially his car collection. It&s obvious he was very good and had a lot of friends. I&m sorry for your loss, Linda, and will keep you in my prayers.

Linda - I was so sad to hear about Larry&s passing. I wanted to be there at the funeral home for you tonight but it was just to close to Dan&s passing that I couldn&t do it. You were always the neatest couple I knew. I thought so much of Larry. I hope he is in a better place. If you ever need to talk I&m here. In losing Dan I lost my best friend and I&m sure you are feeling the same thing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

God Bless

Mrs Underhill,
May prayers are with you. Larry was the kindest most respectable person I had the priviledge of working with at Community Corrections. I was so sad when he became ill and thought of him often. I knew he was a private man and wanted to respect his privacy. He was always telling stories of you and him. You could hear the love for you in his words each time he spoke. I was married in Feburary of this year. He told me the stories of your wedding and just beamed with each word. May he rest in peace and I wish you strength in this time of loss.
Sincerely, Tonya Snoeberger-Shoemaker

Larry was a patient of mine when I worked at Eyeglass World and I really thought the world of him. He was always so nice and I really enjoyed when he would come in. My heart goes out to you and your family and I hope you know that he really will be missed by us.

Denny and Sandy,
Your cousin Bill sends his condolences to you and all of Larry&s family.
My sister Teri sent the Newspaper&s notice of Larry&s passing and I&m so glad that it included a way to send a message.
I remember well when we were all little and you guys all lived on Salisbury in West Lafayette. Uncle Wayne worked at the fruit and vegetable store down where the TripleXXX is and we&d get our Christmas trees from him.
I remember climbing trees and shooting bb guns with Larry (and Donnie, too),
harrassing the college kids who walked down the street, and all of us playing hide and go seek well into dark.
I remember when you all moved out to Union Street and Grandpa Underhill stayed there too. I remember playing euchre, going to Sandy Beach or Frasier&s Landing up at the lake, meeting up with Mildred and Dale, Don and Thelma, Junior and Dottie, Gwendolyn and Skinny, sometimes even Edison at some creek or fishing spot or for Sunday dinner.
I&ve been away from Indiana for 35 years and it&s probably been nearly 40 years since I&ve seen you guys, but I did run into Larry a couple of times when I was visiting in Lafayette.
Anyway, reliving memories of the old days are fun. Too bad it takes a sad event to remind us of them.
Sorry for your lose.
Regards,
Cousin Bill(y) Underhill

Chris W, Underhill left a message on December 6, 2009:
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH DAD AND I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN ONE DAY.

Though we never got to know one another too well in this shell of existence, I cannot wait to meet you in Eternity one glorious awesome day.

I will never be the same person ever again. I never had the chance to tell you in person, face-to-face, the way I really feel about you. Your early departure from this temporary dream of existence leaves a void in my life that cannot be replaced by anything or anyone. I will greatly miss you and the times we could have, and should have shared together.

I know that all of us on this earthly plane must come to pass and its impossible to have you here all the time. The time comes when we all must make our transition and this applies to all men and women. I listen to my heart and realize that the passing on to the next dimension of each one of us is ordained by our God and it must be Good or it would not be.

With Love, your Son

Chris
