I loved you so much Larry. I am so grateful that I had such an amazing person in my life. You were a wonderful role model for my son and father figure I could have asked for. I’m so glad that God put us together. I’ll never forget all the times u picked on me and the times when u gave me a few lectures also. You and Glenda treated me like one of your own kids and you were always there for me. I’m going to miss you Larry. I love you. Keep watching over us all down here till we can see u again.

Aunt Glenda and Joshie I’m sorry for your loss. I love you. Uncle Larry was always a joker and made sure to feed us kids every time we came over. I will most definitely always remember the things Uncle Larry and Aunt Glenda would do to make sure we had new clothes and shoes for school. Uncle Larry was an amazing uncle who had a heart of gold! Uncle Larry I love you and miss you. May you rest up in heaven with all of our loved ones.
