    Mr Larry left footprints wherever he went. Footprints of kindness and love, courage and compassion, humor and inspiration, joy and faith. Even though he is gone, we can still look back and clearly see the trail he left behind...a trail bright with hope that invites us to follow. Even though I never had the honor of meeting Mr Larry, I can tell by the way you talked about him that he was a very caring person with a big kind heart. There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss. Our sincere condolences to you and your entire family who are in our thoughts and prayers. I love you, Mitzi, I am here for you, not just today but forever. With much love, Boo, Larry & Alina

    To the Vaughn family: Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, Jehovah, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. May God comfort you and grant you continuous peace during your time of bereavement. Please accept my sympathy for your loss.
