Friday will be the 3rd birthday without you......and we cannot even
get a trial date for justice. How
happy you must be in heaven, not having
to deal with an unjust world. We love
and think of you daily.

Larry will never be forgotten by his loved ones nor the Blue Family. He is a true hero and he will live on in the hearts of those that loved him. Larry, watch over your family, protect them and guide them through their jouney in life-show them what path to take. My heart goes out to the family for having to live the event over and over again with a trial. Know that Larry is standing beside you to support you. Keep his name alive and always be proud of him as he is a true hero and will never be fogotten.

We made it through another round of holidays. No matter how many come
and how many will always be
a part of us. Your children should
be making you so proud ... they are
growing up just as we had hoped.

Continue to surround us every day.

Tomorrow will be 2 years since you left this old sinful earth. The only consolation is knowing that you are in a better place and enjoying your "mansion in the sky". Christmas time used to be a time of joy for me, but I have lost so many loved ones during the Christmas season. The only joy I now receive is knowing that Christmas is the birth date of our Savior Jesus Christ. Knowing that my loved ones are strolling the streets of gold with Him and only today another of my close friends have joined you all. I know that she will be welcomed with open loving arms by you all. We love and miss you!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas Brother dear. Know that you are missed by so many people who will never forget you and who wish you were here. But I know you are in heaven with our loved ones, and watching over us all, and one day we will all be together again.

I love you and miss you so,

I came here because Michael Chapman left some strong words on Christy Dedman's reflection page. I read of this senseless loss shortly after it happened in 2004. I check this sight at least once a week and do so out of respect for all that have paid in full. I would like to first extend my prayers to all that were effected by this stupid senseless act. I KNOW what you are going through and I pray with you. I hold all of you close to my heart and know that the burden you carry you do not carry alone. We stand together, We stand for what is right, We fight for those that can not fight for themselves, We cry together, We feel the same pain and We walk the same walk. God be with all of you in your time and I will pray for you. But above all that I will walk my beat and carry on the fight in the memory of Larry and Anthony. I dedicate all I do to them. Rest my brothers We will take it from here,,,,,,,See you soon

All I have to give

Hey dad we just got back from washington d.c. a couple days ago and i thought about you alot while we were there but it helped me in so many ways. I met kids my age who had been through the same thing and it felt good to talk about it for the first time because you dont feel like your the only one telling your story. I miss you so much but i think we are all doing alot better since we've been back.I LOVE YOU
