To Larry's family, I am sorry for your loss. I grew up in the same neighborhood with Larry. I remember visiting his Grandpa Bailey's home in Deport Tx. Larry's father John, and my father, Jesse, played baseball in their youth. Joel Guest, Paris,TX
My deepest sympathy for Connie and the boys. I worked with Larry at the hospital and had the pleasure to housesit for the family,he was a great man and always a very caring husband and father. My prayers are with you Bailey family.
You are in most of my high school and early college memories. You were always a very principled person who stood up for his beliefs. As Harry said, you accomplished the goals that you set. You, Harry, Danny, and Karl were friends, and I cherish my memories of that time. You are gone too soon.
I don't believe Larry ever attended any class reunions, although I wished he would have. He was a very intelligent individual, and I believe became a doctor. I know he did a residency at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. I have many good memories of Larry, and Harry Wilson and I running together in high school. And I also remember his advanced ideas of social justice and racial equality. I appreciated and respected his friendship, although we only saw each other a couple of times after high school. Rest easy, Larry.
We spent a good portion of our high school and college together, and everything then was possible. We had the best of times. We both wanted to be doctors, you succeeded, I did not. As we got older, we chased separate dreams. I always admired your convictions, you reached your goals. You gave it your all, and people admired your tenacity. Your life has ended too quickly. I wish for your bravery as I continue my journey. My prayers are with Connie, Patton, Travis, Scott and the grandkids.
