    God saw you getting tierd,And a cure was not to be,So he put his arms around you And whispered,Come to Me. With tearful eyes we watched you,And saw you pass away.Although we loved you dearly.We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us,He only takes the best.

    Rose, I have known Larry for only a short period of time. However, he will live in my memory for a long time to come. He was an extremely kind and loving person, whom quickly became a special person in my family. The near future may be difficult for you, while you try adapt to living without Larry, but please remember you are also part of my family and we will always be there for you. We all love you.
