As his older first cousin, I knew Larry his entire life. He was a loving son, brother and dad to his two girls. He was very proud of all their accomplishments. He was always kind to my mother and me and we enjoyed his company. He will be missed by his entire family.

I am truly sorry to read of the recent passing of your loved one, Lawrence. He will be missed indeed. Isaiah 33:24 speaks of a time when no one will say ,"I am sick." Can you imagine a time where there is no more sickness, pain, hospital, death, etc.? This is a time promised to us all by Our Heavenly Father. He will accomplish this time by means of his Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Once more I am sorry for your loss.
