Larry, Thank you for all you have given this world. I know you died doing what you were born to do but it is in how you lived that you are remembered. You leave a legacy through pictures and stories. Through your children and family. I, for one, know what a tremendous influence you were to them helping them become the wonderful people they are today. You did so much good in this world that I know you are watching and guiding over us in the next. So, instead of remembering that fateful day, I, remember the changes you made to everyone you touched. You still touch them today. Thank you, for being such a terrific person to those who were lucky enough to know you. You are dearly missed... you are and will never be forgotten. Go with God and continue your watch.
