    You were such a beautiful man. You took me into your home as if I was one of yours. You and Nancy and Candi, Randy and Karla were very much my family for a short period of time. I have to thank you and your family for loving me and being my friend and guiding me in a positive way. I love you Larry. You will be missed.
