Condolence: I have not seen Larry since our high school days and the St. Pauls group. I offer you my condolences in your time of grief. I lost my wife on Dec 29th and can certainly feel your pain. Larry was a good guy . Your children have expressed their feelings well. I have fond memories of Larry---playing cards and running dances at St. Pauls. May he rest in peace with the Lord.

Condolence: How do you say goodbye to SUPERMAN?
The man who protected you and kept you safe from the moment you were born until the moment he left us to join God.
The man who, with our mother, never let us want for anything.
The man who would be there for us for advice, support, or a warm hug no matter what.
The man who drove 6 hours on Fridays after work and again on Sundays to bring you back and forth to school your freshman year.
The man who would slip you and your sister an extra "few bucks" as you headed back to college.
The man you looked up to and tried to find his qualities in, in the guys you dated and finding some of them, especially his patience, in your spouses. Lynn and I would always say, "we married our father".
The man you would call 2 to 3 times a day to make sure he was ok, knowing he thought you were a "pain in the a.." but also knowing he appreciated every call.
The man you had a standing lunch date with every Thursday.
The man, who along with Mommy, gave David, Lynn, and I everything and asked for nothing in return.
The man who was happiest being with his family.
I cannot say goodbye, I can only say THANK YOU for giving us the best of everything, especially of YOURSELF.
I love you and will miss you until we see each other again in God's Kingdom.

PS: Please tell my Bob I love and miss him everyday.
Love, Treecy

Condolence: That Larry Face
Behind that face was a great man who we went to for advice and support. He was very generous, and together with our mother, provided us a great childhood, which laid the groundwork for even greater lives.
Thank you Daddy for all the wonderful family vacations from the early days in Hershey Park and Chestnut Grove, to the later years in Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. All providing us with everlasting memories.
Thank you for the "little" surprises that created so much excitement for us. When there was a knock on the door and on the other end was the Luigis pizza delivery man with an extra large square pie (best pizza ever). When you would disappear for a few minutes and come back with a dozen HOT Elias bagels (best bagels ever). And when you would go out right before Christmas and come back with with your bargain Christmas tree (still my favorite trees).
Several things made you happy, your trips to Hawaii, playing golf, watching Notre Dame play, and gambling in A.C., but I believe you were the happiest with your family around you, and in your chair with the clicker.
We will miss you Daddy until one day when we see that Larry face again.
Love, David

Condolence: Dear Toni and Family,
My very deepest sympathies to you all on your loss. I was so saddened to learn of Larry's passing. We were friends since teen years having met at St. Paul's Sodality group in Jersey City. So many beautiful memories came flooding back. Memories are part of the strength that sustains us all. My thoughts and prayers are with you through this difficult time. Larry is free now ~ no more sickness ~ he soars with the Angels. May he Rest in the Peace of the Lord.
