25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

John 11: 25-27

  1. May his soul rest in eternal peace. May God be your family’s comfort and support.
    Thank you for sharing Larry with us.

  2. Gosh, has it already been 7 years? I can’t imagine the loss, Don, not that the passage of time makes it any less felt. May Larry continue to live on your memories. Continued prayers for your family.

  3. Thank you for your kind words my friends. The anniversaries can be rough, but the law mines kept me pretty busy today and that helped. After Larry’s death time seemed to stop for me, and I wanted time to pass to alleviate the sorrow I felt. Time has been a balm for the sorrow, but the missing of my boy never goes away, and I guess it would be a tragedy if it did. Someday, please God, I will join him in the Kingdom of Love Eternal and that hope sustains me. My bride, as ever, was my rock today, as she has been every day since we first met.

  4. The stories you shared with us about time spent with Larry were so heart warming. Thank you. In turn I shared some of those with a friend who had lost her teenage daughter in an auto accident. She said it helped with her own grief.
    May 19th is also the one year anniversary of my cousin Patty’s death. Her husband predeceased her 13 months earlier. I spoke with her brother tonight. Because of the Bay Area stay at home policy four of the five children were able to be together with their uncle only via Zoom and reminisced about good times and family history. Sadly the fifth child has mental health issues and his whereabouts were unknown at the times of his parents’ deaths.
    Blessings to the McCleary family.
