Thank you for your service and dedication to our country, Uncle Lawrence. I was 9 months old when you died, but my Mother adored you and named my brother after you in your honor. I have visited your grave and have often ponder on the sacrifice you made. 54 years have not diminished what you did.

I truly appreciate the comments made on your page. A big heartfelt Thanks!!
