    Dear Emily and Clayton and families, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. How blessed you were to have your mom with you in this earthly realm for so long and know that you will be joining her again in the heavenly realm along with your dad, Melissa and Valerie. Larry joined his parents in the heaveln.y realm in December 19th last year. I miss him every second.
