    I am so sorry for the loss of Larry. He touched my heart the first time I met him and Norma. My heart is broken for the entire family.
    The following is a beautiful message I recently received in the past. I hope it brings comfort to you, too.

    Those we love don’t go away,
    they walk beside us every day.
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    so loved, so missed, so very dear.
