I miss you so very much. I know yesterday was 1 year but everyday is a first it seems. I was numb and didn’t want to be without you again. I’m trying really hard. Nothing takes away the loss or grief. I’m getting through it and some days only scraping by but that’s okay too.

This is what I’ve learned.
That it needed to a day with family. That not everything has to be said out loud. That I feel
Your love every second even when I’m not thinking about it. That all the wishes, prayers, hopes cannot bring you back to me. That it’s ok to hurt. That it’s not about me or anyone else in the end, it’s always been about you. That grief is a never ending process and time only changes how you grieve.

I love you forever and ever.

I hope you are free of all pain. That you are fishing, racing, running, riding, boating. I hope you are living in a big open space with quiet and peace, drinking a coke and eating a snickers bar. Listening to all your favorite music, hanging with our family and playing with our fur babies.

Watch our girls from wherever you are. They miss their Daddy and need your guidance still.
My heart is yours XO

There was a giant truck across the street today. When they were leaving, I went out and pumped my arm just like you used to do when we were on the road, and we were on the road alot. He blew the horn in your memory. Love you, sweet brother. It made my whole day, maybe my week.

I'm so angry. I'm going to slap you when I see you again. You left me and didn't even tell me. BRAT!!! Nobody could push your buttons like I could. I'm so proud of that now. Love you so much!!!!!

Posted by Patricia Murphy on December 20, 2019
I just can't stop posting. I miss you so much. I really missed your phone call today, you never missed it. I love you to the moon and back a million times. I know you're not hurting anymore. When I told Tim I was missing your call today, he said "remember, it's 5 oclock somewhere". That made me smile. Love you!!!!!!!
Posted by Patricia Murphy on December 13, 2019
I once again shared your tribute. Really great pics. One of my friends commented on your beautiful smile. You sure did have a great smile. You had a difficult life, beginning to end. I can remember so many times you fought for your life, even as a child. You never let it get you down. You were one tough cookie. Always had a great attitude and loved life.
Posted by Patricia Murphy on December 13, 2019
3 months and another Friday the 13th. Hope you're at peace. Haven't heard from you yet. It was a few months before I heard from Mom in a dream. I'll be waiting. Love you!!!

I have to tell a story. My baby brother loved big trucks so much. We were on the road a lot. We moved a lot as kids. He would pump his little arm at the big trucks we passed and 95% of them would blow their horns. He drove for Overnight for a while and Cranston was his route. He used to come park in the lot next to where I worked in Cranston, RI and we would have lunch together, before 2005, when he moved with his girls to Fl. He would let me sit in the driver's seat and blow the horn. LOL Sometimes, when I would see him on the road, I would chase him down and he always stopped. He taught me how to make sure he could see me in the mirror of that giant truck. One day, I had had a really bad day with my boss at work and I chased him down. He said, "you want to me take care of her?", OMG NOOO. He would have though. That's just how he was with his family. Such a good guy, ALWAYS!!!!! I'll miss you till the day I die, Larry. Love you so much.

Hi daddy,

I got a promotion today, they made me lead therapist which means I’m kinda a boss now. My immediate thought was to share it with mama and you. There’s so many things I feel like you’re missing and it hurts so much. I know you’re with me along the way and I know you’re looking out for me, it’s still hard tho. I wish you were here to celebrate, to tell me that I can do this and that I’ll be okay. I wouldn’t be where I’m at without you teaching me how to be stronger and better.

I miss you. I love you so, so much. ❤️❤️

Happy Birthday in heaven my handsome, sweet, caring Louie. Hope you're having a good time with Mom and everyone else you've reunited with. I'm still having a hard time processing that you're gone. Always on my mind, forever in my heart. Love you.
Posted by Leigh-Ann Lindsay on October 11, 2019
Happy Birthday Baby! There are no words to express how deeply missed you are! My heart hurts at the physical loss. I love you beyond measure and time. Forever mine.
Hope your having tequila shots with your mom, while my mom enjoys a bottle of wine celebrating you! Give Gram a kiss for me I’m sure she made a delicious cake, she never forgot the ice cream. Please give lots of hugs to our fur babies from me.. Until we meet again my love XOXOXO

Can't stop counting the days. Miss you so much. We spoke a lot. I know you had to know the last time we spoke. You just didn't want me to know. That's OK. I know how tough you were. Miranda gave the best eulogy ever. You would have been so proud, again. You were so proud of all of your girls. I consider myself one of your girls too. On my mind forever. Love you, my Louie. My baby brother forever.
Posted by Patricia Murphy on September 21, 2019
My baby brother. My flesh and and blood.  Love you forever, Mom too.  You'll have our secrets forever.
Posted by Maryssa Lindsay on September 21, 2019
Daddy,

I miss you more and more each day. It’s the little things that keep hitting me. I’ll be going about my day and suddenly it’ll hit me again. That you’re not here, that you’ve taken your last breath, that you won’t physically be here for all the accomplishments to come.

I’m trying to be stronger each day, and some days it works. Most days it doesn’t. I know in time I’ll be stronger and it won’t be so painful. The second you left us I felt a hole in my heart. A piece of me is gone forever. Everything I’ve learned throughout this crazy life has been through you. I can’t bring myself to cook or bake because I can’t go to you for your opinion, the first and only that mattered.

I know you’re with me each and every day, I can feel your energy around me and I see signs that I’m choosing to believe are from you. I just miss you, and I won’t stop missing you. I miss you more today than yesterday. I’ll miss you more tomorrow than today.

I love you, daddy.
Posted by Leigh-Ann Lindsay on September 21, 2019
My love, life will never will be the same. My heart shattered the day you left. I hold on to so many moments in time, all too fast, too soon. It would have never been enough, as life with you was perfectly imperfect and more than I ever could imagine. My love, my soulmate, FOREVER MINE. Until we meet again XOXOXOXO

Larry you giant knuckle head,

You are missed and you will continue to be missed until we can’t miss you anymore. Life hasn’t been easy for you; but, you never let that dim your spirit. You kept on trucking and moving forward up until your last breath. I am grateful to have known you. I am grateful to you for making me a part of your family and for creating such an amazing, kind, loving daughter. I will make sure to remind her how much you love her and how proud you are of her. You live on through her, Miranda, and your wonderful, wonderful wife. I hope you know how loved and appreciated you are by everyone you have come in contact with. Tonight was evident of that. There is no one else like you and there probably never will be. Thank you for being you.
As your esteemed assistant, I will take your dog feeding expertise with me as I move forward with my dog sitting duties and can only hope I cut it without you.
Rest easy big guy. Until we meet again.

Larry was a wonderful, funny, told it the way it was, friend. Everyone that knew him, knew and heard how much he loved his wife and girls. That is special beyond all. There are no words adequate enough to take away your heartbreak. We pray with time you find peace, comfort and days full of wonderful memories. Know that we are here for you. We love you Leigh-Ann, Miranda and Maryssa.

Miranda, Maryssa, and Leigh-Ann,
I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Larry was a family man through and through, and I am so grateful to be close to your family to witness and experience just how much he loved all of you. I have many memories of being included in family birthday parties, celebrations, and holidays. Escape rooms with your dad were always hilarious, and he used to pull my leg when it came to putting cheese or no cheese on my burgers at BBQs. A few years back, we sat on his truck at the beach to see the 4th of July fireworks while drinking Coke and eating snacks from the gas station. One of my favorite memories was going house hunting with you, and your dad would crack jokes about the layout or the landscaping. Larry was so blessed to have you all taking care of him and sticking by his side each and every day.  Girls, I know this is one of the hardest times in your lives. You all are so strong and will be each other’s shoulder throughout this grieving time. Know how much I love you and am praying for you to feel God’s peace. 
Love,
Renee

We just saw this on facebook after returning from a trip. We are shocked. I enjoyed all the times of conversation I had and the visits I was able to have with him. I will catch up with him in heaven soon. Sorry to hear that he left you at such a young age. Love Dad & Mary Jo.

We have tried the phone number we have, but haven't been able to reach anyone...you are in our prayers.

Larry, was always by my side weather it was racing or just going to grab a bite to eat. The world of towing, brought our world's together, but our passion for cars, and racing brought us closer. He was the one to always push me to get my car & go racing, while racing, he would make it better, with his wit & humor. He became a big part of me & my racing family. He will be Greatly missed, in my World & by all that knew him. Love You Larry

his Life
Larry Lindsay was a family man, first and foremost. He met Leigh Ann in 1990 while she was five months pregnant with Miranda. As their love grew, he took Leigh Ann to lamaze classes, and doctor’s appointments. A few months later, he told Leigh Ann, “I can’t wait to be a family,” and so they became. He was in the delivery room, as Miranda was being brought into the world, he was there, holding Leigh Ann’s hand. And Miranda never thought of him as anything but her dad, despite the lack of blood relation.


Two years later, they had Maryssa and they became the close family unit that you might know them as today. Larry drove a tractor trailer and brought home money for his family to live and eat. He prided himself on being the provider for his three girls.


After moving to Florida in 2005, Larry then found his second love (the first being his family), tow truck driving with Emerald Towing. Larry’s knowledge and skills made him perfect for this career, and he quickly earned the trust of the owners. He started driving the “big truck,” hooking up the largest of vehicles and being the one everyone could rely on. This was not surprising to anyone that knew him. Larry has always been the one someone could call with a need and he would show up and have answers. He’s just that guy.


One night, in September of 2010, he was working on the side of I-95 when two cars got into an accident right next to him. One spun out, and hit Larry. He obtained over 30 fractures from the mid-back down as well as other numerous injuries. He spent a month in the hospital, relearning how to walk and getting strong enough to come home. All he could talk about every day, when Miranda, Maryssa, and Leigh Ann visited, was coming home and being a family again. But when he did, he encountered an even bigger battle - adjusting to the question, “What is my life now, as a disabled man?”


For nine years, he has worked at becoming the best version of this new Larry he could be. He could no longer physically do the job he so loved, which stole a part of his identity; he couldn’t be the breadwinning family man anymore, but he didn’t give up. He was not without his trials both physically and mentally. But he absolutely always did his best and his family was grateful for the blessing of his presence.


In August of 2019, Larry was unexpectedly and suddenly diagnosed with late stages Metastatic Melanoma throughout multiple vital organs. He had decided to fight. But each day got worse, and  on Friday, September 13th, 2019, the universe, God, and most importantly, Larry, decided that they had other plans. He had suffered enough, and it was time for him to finally be at peace.

He was my Mom's baby boy.  She would have been crushed by his passing.  So sorry, Mommy.  I'll miss him too.  Hope the 2 of you are having a good time together.

On Christmas Eve since forever we always wrapped presents late together. We would switch every year on whose we wrapped. Mostly because I suck at it.. I miss that and Larry more than I could ever imagine.

Larry,

My heart truly aches during this time. Growing up with the girls gave me some of the best memories. You were a jokester and I could never figure out if you were serious or joking (even as an adult).  I don't know why our loved ones are taken from us from sickness or from accidents, I will never understand the order in which people depart from earth. But what I do understand and what I do know is that you loved your family. You always welcomed me and my family in with open arms and treated us as family. With that being said Camping was always the beat, water fights, campfires, your yummy cooking, and lets not forget you trying your very hardest to get me off the tube. You were flipping me all around and you just couldn't get me to let go, it was such a challenge for the both of us! But it was always something I looked forward to when we all camped. When I got the call that you had passed My first thought was dammit! But my second thought was well at least Mikey has a fishing buddy!   Going to Florida will never be the same, ill miss your wild stories your extreme sarcasm and of course I will miss you. See you on the other side Larry!
