I loved Larry dearly and am comforted by the fact that he is at peace. He and Paul Valen took me under their wings when I was a brand new nurse in the OR. They were my heroes. Johnny and I shared many wonderful times at Jose’s with Larry filled with much laughter. Larry always had a twinkle in his eye. He would borrow my daughter’s Disney movies and always left a five dollar bill in the case for his rental fee. I could go on and on about how he touched my life. I pray that his family finds comfort in the fact that he was loved very much by many people.
Corbin, I am so sorry for your loss and my sympathy goes out to you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time and I pray God gives you and your family strength in the coming days.
