Dear friend Patty and family,

I was so sorry to read of your brother's death. He had fought a long, hard battle and God saw it was time. I know you will miss him greatly. Hold tight to the many memories you have, especially all the things you had done for him to make things comfortable and as pleasant as possible for him during these last weeks/months. You were so kind, loving, and caring at a time when he really needed that. When you feel like talking, give me a call. My thoughts, prayers and love go out to you, my dear friend.

Larry was my best friend, he also was like a brother to me. We did everything together when I lived in Nebraska. We hunted, fished, worked on cars, and just spent quality time together. I tried to visit him everytime I came back to Nebr. for a visit. He was a very good man, with a very kind heart. I will miss him dearly, but I will always have my memories and some pics of him that no one can take from me.
