My love for Larry is like no other. 
He helped me out when I had no job, tending to his kitties, cats with no homes that he would take in. He would tell me details about each one.
We've had some great talks over the years. Talks about God and the paradise earth to come. Talks about the good ol' days. Talks about the past, things I didn't know from his best times as a teen.
He definitely appreciated the goodness in creation. A love for every little creature.
A life full of experience, tales untold.
Jayleigh says she loved his humor.
He loved children.
He was, in some strange way, a lot like my dad who I lost a few years ago, and a part of me feels like a loss of Dave again along with Larry. Strange but deep.
To all my family affected by this loss, please accept a deep long hug from me. We will get through this time together, as Uncle Larry would have wanted.

My daughter, Gina Vancamp, wishes me to convey a tribute for her.
"I love you."
"I never wanted you to go."
"My heart is broken."

I feel the exact way that Gina does, Larry.
Forever.
