I am sorry for your loss. My prayers are with your family and friends. Adversities often sap a person of physical and emotional strength, even numbing the heart. When under extreme pressure from your grief pour out your heart to God in prayer. He promises that all who do will have their thoughts and feelings soothed by "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding." Philippians 4:6,7
K. F., Maryland, September 6, 2016 As we age the memories of our youth become more special. This is especially true as we think about our classmates. Events forgotten for long years suddenly play out in our minds' eye and we find ourselves laughing, crying and hurrying away to look at pictures and albums. With Larry it has been a little different. Memories from elementary school right through graduation are there but not as sharply defined as the ones starting on January 2, 1968. It was on that day that three of us, Larry, Phil Anderson and myself reported for induction into military service. For the next 8 weeks we endured the rigors of basic training at Ft. Polk Louisiana. We learned more about our selves and each other in those few weeks than we had in the 19 plus years before. We became more than classmates, more than hometown friends. We became brothers as only those who have served together can be. I respect Larry for what he gave to our nation. I enjoyed talking and sharing our experiences with him. I love him as only a brother can love a brother. And, while I will miss him, I remain confident that we will meet again. RIP my brother. Ken Bangs, September 6, 2016 It is difficult to hear of classmates departing this earth but we must remember that they are going to a better place with no suffering!! Blessings and prayers are extended to his family at this time!! Mary Ann Turner Moon, September 4, 2016
