Condolences

  1. Larry my friend and sonic brother. We spent lots of time together growing up at the Masonic Home and School in Fort Worth and had many memories we shared. I will truly miss you and am glad that I got to see you one last time to say our good byes. RIP

  2. My condolences to the family. You don’t know me, but I recently lost my wife and two of my children, so I can feel your pain. The things that brought me the most comfort were passages from the Bible. I would like to share a couple of them with you. One was in Acts 24:15 where it tells us that there will be a resurrection of the dead. So we could see all our loved ones again, alive and well. In Psalm 37:9-11 it tells us that the evil people, wickedness, everything bad will be gone and people will live on earth in peace. In verse 29 we are told that they will live forever on the earth. Revelation 21:1-4 shows us how this will be done. It tells of a new heavens and a new earth where God will dwell with men. You see, If our all powerful God, Jehovah, is there, then He will rule the earth. He is a god of love, peace, justice and righteousness. With Him there, what kind of world would we and our resurrected loved ones have? Then in verse 4 we are told that he will do away with death, sorrow, pain and tears. Can you picture, Larry, alive and well, and all of you there to welcome him back, into a much better world than the one he left. Never again will you have to lose anyone in death.

  3. Larry we did not know each other for long at the MHS.
    Over the years through out the different methods of communication we achieved a friendship that will last forever in my heart ❤️. Our time we had together at reunions were priceless. Thank you for for your friendship

  4. I’m watching your favorite movie, “Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” thinking about you & Jillian & Granny. I remember one Thanksgiving at Granny’s. Jillian sitting on your lap while you were feeding her pie & she sneezed the biggest sneeze in that pie, it was so funny. I sure miss you Uncle Larry. I’m gonna miss you calling me “Spot” heh-heh. You were a good Uncle & I loved you to the moon. Rest in Paradise & I will see you again some day.

  5. I have been looking for the words to say…. Bobbye I am so sorry to hear that Larry has left this life on earth… His soul is in Heaven now… he is at peace. I have so many fond memories of Larry and your family when we’d get together….. oh the sillyness and shennigans…. Something was wrong if there wasn’t some kind of shennigan happening… If Larry didn’t have a twinkle in his eye… he was probably asleep…I am so thankful I came by to visit you both, and that my friend Donna & I could come see you. I wish I was feeling better so I could come up there now, but bronchitis has me down. I love you Bobbye and I am sending you big hugs !! Prayers for peace and comfort to you and your family.

  6. To the Scoggins Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. He and Bobbye were such good neighbors, and were a help to me in my time of sorrow, when my husband passed. My heart goes out to all of you at this time of mourning. May the Lord bless you! May Larry rest in peace!

  7. Uncle Larry, I was going through some pictures and I’m so very grateful that over the years, no matter when, or where, you were always there. My graduation, walking me down the isle, and so many other random occasions or spontaneous road trips. I’ll always cherish the happy memories with you and Aunt Bobbye and Gary and Jared (and Chief). I have this crazy visual of you, Scott, Gran, and our Jillian all sitting around a table somewhere playing dominos and drinking iced tea.
