|Let the memory of Larry be with us forever|
"On Friday, August 28, 2015 Larry will have been gone for one year. I am trying to keep this day as a celebration of his passage into the gates of heaven. I am going to order a special cake and get some ice cream as this was his favorite dessert. Anybody who would like to join us....we are planning on going to the cemetery with balloons that we will write on and release them to commemorate him. And then I am going to Island Fest and listen to some reggae music. Larry loved that festival and we would go listen to the music every summer. I want to keep this day as light and happy as possible. I am not kidding myself. It will also be a very difficult day but I am already praying for the grace to keep it a celebration. If anybody would like to join us I will post further, more specific times and plans later. Thanks!"
"Larry....I went to the cemetery this morning to visit your grave and check your flowers. I feel peaceful there. I did not stay as long as I would have liked to. A man was wandering around out there and it frightened me a bit so I left but I will be back soon. I had nightmares with you in them last night and it really upset me. Tonight I hoping for sweet dreams. Last Wednesday Joe took Marcia and I to see the Rolling Stones in Detroit at Comerica Park. I know, I know....you don't like them. lol But it's the first time since you went to heaven that I allowed myself to go out and have fun. I love you and I miss you as always."
"I miss you Uncle Larry. I still think of you frequently. I know I'm awkward about saying stuff like, "I love you" but you know I do. It's wonderful to know that you are in heaven with the Lord. No doubt in my mind. Though I miss putzing around and looking for used cars, and just talking about things, I'll see you again. It does make me happy to know you're not in pain anymore. Your spirit is healthy as an ox."
"Hi Larry...Jezrel is coming home from Madison tomorrow night. I am so happy about that. I look at him and I see you . The resemblance is remarkable. He is going to the annual ping pong tournament at the Morris's. Hope he will be finished in time to take Nathan and I to some fireworks. Jezrel has been through a lot of changes. He left Direct TV and now repairs garage doors. I am proud of him. He recently went to Tennessee with Whitney...you don't know her. He met her right around the time you went to heaven. She is a very nice young woman. Her parents are good to Jezrel. Anyway, that's our Fourth of July. I hope Heaven has fireworks. I love you...........Kathi"
The boys and I miss you so much. I think of you every single day. I miss everything about you and still cannot fully believe you are truly gone. I know you are in heaven and that helps. But still the loneliness is overwhelming. We love you and miss you."
Have a suggestion for us?
