Dear Bruney Family,

Larry was a dear friend from his deaconate days at St. Malachy's. He officiated my wedding in 1988. His passing is a big shock to me, but I hold special my relationship to him. I will pray for you all.

Dear Bruney Family,
I knew Larry because my mom (Phyllis Smith) worked with at Irvin Works. When my mom called me to make sure that I got home from school, Larry would sometimes would talk to me on the phone. Sometimes I wondered if they all worked in that office because I heard lots of funny stories. I know Larry lived his life to the fullest. I'm keeping him and your family in my prayers.

Fr. Larry has been a friend of my family since the early 1980's when he was the pastor at St. Philomena's in Beaver Falls. When my father died in 1985 (he was only 45 years old), Fr. Larry was there for my entire family and helped us through as my dad left my mom and us 5 children. I remember Fr. Larry took me to Robert Morris University to tell my brother the sad news of our dad's passing. That's what a special friend he was to us. He and I especially were very close as he married me and my wife in 1991, baptized all 3 of our children, and also married 3 of my 4 brothers and sisters along with baptizing several of their kids too, all while being stationed at another parish in Pittsburgh. We kept in touch over the years and up to date on our lives. He would attend family functions when he could and always sent me a birthday card as he took time to remember me. I would do the same as he shares the same birthday, March 28, as my uncle. He took me and my wife out to dinner for our 20th anniversary... that's how much of a dear friend he was to us. I called him in August to see if we could meet and he told me he just got out of chemo and wasn't feeling well. He said to give him about 6 weeks or so. Needless to say about 4 weeks after the 6 week time period I never got to talk to him again as I just found out he passed away and I am very sad to see that my/our friend and pastor has gone to see the Lord and is now pain free. All the more reason to don't put off till tomorrow what you could do today! We will all miss you Father Larry or "Padre" as I affectionately called him. You will always be in my heart forever and I will miss you tremendously and all you have done for us. Rest in Peace, Padre!
