    He was a great friend to me when we were in our twenties. His compassion was such an example to me. I will always love my friend, Larry!

    Laugh with those who laugh. Weep with those who weep. May you all be comforted by the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials so that we can comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. May you draw close to God in prayer, James 4:8. May you look forward to the time when all grief will cease as God has promise that He will wipe all tears from our eyes, death and morning will be no more, and outcry and pain will be no more, Rev 21:4. He will recall to life those who He remembers that have fallen asleep in death, Acts 24:15. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Larry.
