Larry I can't believe that it has been 5 months since you have passed and not a day has gone by that I have not spoke to you. I am still missing you and loving you more every day. I know I always told you I would never have a tattoo done with your name on it but I did and I wear you joy. I also have part of your ashes in a necklace and wear you close

So sorry to hear of Larry's passing. It doesn't seem like it has been over 30 years since we spent all those Sunday afternoons together at Grandma Minnie's house. It is strange how families drift apart over time.
We send our deepest sympathy during your time of loss.

I could ever have.Thank you for being there for your big brother whenever he needed help,he loved you so much. Thank you for being like a second dad to Steve Jr, he needed you as much as you needed him.Even though you tried

were just a big teddy bear. You had a

Aunt Mindi and Family,
There is nothing in life more painful than losing a loved one, but the love is there forever. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory comfort you tomorrow.
May God bless you and your family during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you-Mindi, Glenn, Steve and all the children, nieces & nephews.
I met Larry and his brothers at Dana while I worked in the cafeteria.
Shared many beers and good times with them after work....those were some days back then.
His passing will leave an empty spot within each heart who knew him but the memories of the times spent together will remain forever to help sustain each and everyone through the coming days and years.
God reached down

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Larry's family and friends. I'm sure I must have met Larry long ago since he was Steve's brother, and if he was anything like Steve I know he must have been a great person. Just reading the memories here I wish I had known him better. It is never easy when a loved one leaves us and goes home and the memories are all we have, but those same memories are

Mindi and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Larry's family. I personally got to know Larry for a short time what I did know of him was that he was loving, caring and funny. Always willing to help out and always cracking jokes. He worked the bar for my reception and had Santa come to x-mas. He will truly be missed. He will never be forgotten he will always be in our hearts. He is in heaven now

I don't really know how to start this and this is the 4th time I have tried since last night. No matter all the times we had our differences we always were able to laugh and talk crap to each other. I don't remember the last thing that we said to each other and I have been sitting here trying to figure that out. I will miss you very much. Jaden and Xayvion loved their papa Larry so much.

Larry was a bright spot that faded much too quickly. I will miss his sense of humor and quick wit and the way he mis-pronounced words...some were way too funny!!
Mindi, you know you are loved by family and friends. When you hurt, we hurt too. Stay strong and know that Larry loved you deeply. Enjoy the memories that you shared with him. Love you little sister.

A lot of memories. My uncle was funny, loveable and would do anything you needed. The last time I talked to him on the phone he told me to call my dad. Becouse he knew I haven't seen him in a while. That's the larry I know. He thought of others first. IF I could give my kid's the childhood I got becouse of larry, steve and glenn (dad). I would be complete. and If larry is reading this he is calling me a wimp for crying. Love you .

So sorry to hear of the loss of Larry. To all the family, my heartfelt sympathy.
To loose a loving friend and relative is hard especially when there is no warning or illness prior to passing as we all experienced with my brother. To know Larry and Mike are together again brings a smile. However, the vacant place of affection in our hearts will take awhile to heal.
Please know he is in a better place.
Love to you all.

All that comes to mind is Larry at my graduation party and all the times I've seen him playing cards. He was happy, and thats the Larry I want to remember. Laughing, and making the most hilariously inappropriate jokes.
I can't imagine what the people that were closest to him are going through. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Jenni and Mindi, and everyone else.

Larry was like a second father to me. When I lost Joey as my best friend in 99 I took Larry on the next best thing to keep me attached to Joey and now I feel its all now taken from me. I know God has better things for him now. He will always be considered as family to me and will greatly be missed. I love you Larry. One day we will reunite and laugh about many of the times we had.

I had the pleasure of Larry in my life for quite some time. He always had something funny to say and could always make you laugh. I loved the way he would say Jamocha shake, if anyone has heard him say it, you will get a chuckle I am sure. He always smelled good. I am glad I went to the Army Navy Club on Tuesday to get a last laugh and drink with him. Love ya Big Guy. See you again some day, and tell Mom and Peewee we love them.

So sorry Mindi, he was truly a great guy!!! I've know Larry since he was 16 years old, anyone who met him liked him. He was so many things to so many people, he will be missed but just knowing he is now with his beloved son Joey and his mom and dad helps to some what ease the pain. It was wonderful that these last few years he found happiness again with you , God bless you!!!!
