  • You are never forgotten!!!

    Time moves forward and please know you will never be forgotten! Thank you for your sacrifice and for choosing me to be your high school sweetheart. You set the bar high!! I'll never forget you asking me to dance at the National Guard Armory in CG when I was just 15. And for spending so many nights on our phones talking when our parents tried to pull us apart. We were there for each other. I've yet to find another beautiful gentleman soul like yours! Thank you for protecting our country and those wounded soldiers all those years ago. The times we spent sharing our cherry cokes at the drug store counter after school and for sneaking outside your house just to hold my hand before my Theta Rho meetings which were held so close to your house. Gone too soon for I will always believe God would have eventually put us back together !!!! You will always stand next to my little brother as the brightest of stars from above!! I miss the heart and soul of you and will be forever blessed by your presence in my life!!

    Throughout the years, I remember you often and am always reminded of the joy you brought to my life. You set the bar high Larry!! I will never ever forget your contribution to my life all those years ago, our phone conversations that lasted hours on end for we were not allowed to spend a lot of time together. I was of the wrong faith according to your mom. She could not help it for it was who she was. I was not what she wanted for you religious wise even though God knew we prayed to the same God. I remember the laughter, the gentleman you were, and you were a light in my life always. I'm confident you had the same positive impact on every soul that crossed your path!! Thank you for asking me to dance at the National Guard Armory when we were just 15 and for sharing all those cherry comes with me after school and for sneaking out of your house to hold my hand after my Theta Rho meetings.

    Larry, I remember you well. When I looked at this picture of you I could hear your voice and remember how 'cool' you were. You had a special charisma about you. You were my older brother Ron's friend. You would come to our house often and twice you give me a haircut. I trusted you. Our Mother's were also friends and your little sister was in my class at school. We were all saddened from the news of your passing. And although five years later Nov. 19,1970 I also entered the Army and was sent to Germany instead of VN. I remember you Larry, forever.
