In loving memory of my beloved father - a true DADDY, Larry Wayne Rogers, 52, born on February 12, 1960 and began his new life with Our Heavenly Father on February 27, 2012. My father was an ambitious, Godly man, with a remarkable love for the Lord and passionate about spreading His love he has for His Earthly children.
He knew how to make people laugh and dearly loved his three daughters- Shauna Patton, Jennifer Harwood, and me. Nonetheless, his grandchildren were the light of his life - Devin Patton, Dylan Hancock, Jacob Patton, Brookie Patton, and Ambria Harwood. My dad will always be in our hearts.
Please share any stories, photos, videos, or just post a tribute :-)
"Larry today is your birthday. Oh how I wish I could pick up the phone and call and say I you. I still have your name and number in my cell phone. I just can't erase it. I can't wait till the day comes when I can put my arms around your neck and give you a big hug. I posted yours and Gary's birthday on Face Book today and I had to say Happy Birthday to both you and Gary. Just don't sound right saying just one name. I had to say both names. I'm sure if you could hear in Heaven, Gary also sent you a Birthday Wish. I Love You Brudder."
"It's been 3 years since you left us. So much has happened In all our lives. I know one day we will all be together. If tears could bring you all back youns would have never left. I wouldn't want to bring you back to this old world . One day and very soon we will be together. I miss our talks and laughs "Brudder" :-) I LOVE YOU!"
"I love and miss you Brudder. Time has helped some, but not taken the pain away. I'm just thankful for the memories of you. Happy Birthday and I Love & Miss You Dearly."
"Happy Birthday Larry - I miss my best friend. You are still spoken about and remembered fondly here at Delta."
"Larry I sure wish you were here so I could say Happy Birthday Brudder.
I know this day is hard on Gary. He always had a twin brother to say happy birthday to. Now he has to celebrate this day by himself. You will never know how much I miss you. If tears could bring you back you would have only been gone a second. I know you had to go, but you cheated us by going so soon. You go ahead and enjoy Heaven, The Lord, Mom, Dad and all the others. My prayer is the rest of your family will see you there one day. Having said this I'm going to say one more thing. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRUDDER. I Love & Miss You so much. Enjoy the streets of gold. Love Always, Dobbie & Harvey"
"Two years ago from today, I left work early again to visit daddy in Cartersville Medical Center's ICU... I think it was his 4th or 5th day in the ICU. He was sleeping when I walked into his room - I made sure to be very quiet because the wonderful ICU nurses said he had a rough night and finally fell asleep 10mins before I walked in. I cautiously placed pieces of scotch tape on the back of Dylan's handmade birthday cards and taped them to the wall under the TV. The machines that he was hooked up to were far louder than a freight train, but as soon as I sat down in the chair next to his bed, he opened his eyes - his eyes didn't wonder around the room nor did he tried to focus his eyes, like when someone first wakes - his eyes were already locked onto me, as if he knew where I was before awaking... we just stared at each other, which seemed like eternity because he didn't have to say a word BUT I knew what he was thinking and vice versa... he asked me if he was about to die. I kissed him on the forehead and told him, "of course not & get that out of your head" ... I truly believed he was ludicrous for asking such a question. I thought he would pull out of this one, just as all the other times (as well as times he was in the hospital without telling anyone...well, not telling family members). Prior to this ICU admission (Dec2011), several doctors & specialists told me (and dad and others in the room...) that if dad didn't do something now, then his body will give out on him within the next year... So, I tried to talk dad into coming home with me, considering he was now on a special diet & strict regime of meds, and stay with me or at least come back home so I can just walk up the hill to care for him... but it was to no avail. Anyways, I'm veering off the topic ;) After dad caught a glimpse of the cards taped under the TV, a tear trickled down his cheek from his blinded eye... I'll continue with this story at a later time.
My daddy was a great, Godly man and I am so proud to be his daughter!! Eventually, we shall be together again with Our Heavenly Father."
"Dearest Uncle Larry ~ Happy Birthday In Heaven... I know my Daddy sure misses celebrating this special day with you! You are always with him, in his heart and on his mind! We love you!"
"... then reality hit... even if I couldn't make a few things "work" for Dylan... ALL that matters is that Dylan learns about our Heavenly Father and what Christ did for us."
"... still remember the day I was walking down the aisle of my first wedding, at the base of the stairs, I paused & flashed a "maybe this is a bad idea," glance at daddy... he understood, but was relentless to prove the point of bringing new life to God's domain was a miracle, HE WAS SO RIGHT!!!!"

"I have missed my Bro so much, I know your in a much better place with no pain and with Daddy and Mom and other loved ones. I sure miss talking with you and all the laughs. If tears could bring our loved ones back you would have never left us. Someday we will be together but until then we have to be strong for each other.Love you and miss you so much."
