Becky, I remember going to your dads house and eating bowlfulls of Lucky charms. I know he was your lucky charm and it would be hard to imagine life without him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Know that his "charm" is now blessing everyone. I love you. Stephanie.

Dear Family and Friends of Larry Thorne,

Where do I begin? For years I have periodically tried to find Larry Thorne. I tried people searches, made phone calls, conducted email searches all trying to find the special person who was my Guitar Teacher back in 1969.

When my parents bought me my first guitar, my mom discovered an ad for guitar instruction in our local paper. Mom made the call and Larry became our Teacher.

Lessons were 1/2 hour but many times Larry would extend the time because he knew I was loving every minute of it!

One day, Mom asked Larry-"How's Ken doing on the guitar"? He responded by saying-"Good news, and bad news....Good news is that he's beginning to pick up the music by ear, bad news...he probably won't need me anymore"!

It was Mr. Thorne who taught me "Folsom Prison Blues", "I Walk The Line", "The Wildwood Flower" and so much more. He helped pick out my very first guitar strap-which I still have. I also have the Joe Maphis guitar instruction book with his notations in it. It is framed and displayed in my studio.

I would have loved to have visited with him and to personally tell him how much he meant to me. Now his family knows, and that is heart warming.

I'm still pickin' country music, and a big reason for that is because Larry was a wonderful Teacher. I will never forget him. He will always have a special place in my heart.

May God comfort each of you this day and the days ahead.

In Christ Jesus,

memories of larry flood my heart. I first remember larry for his tenacity - he did things himself, and he did things his way. he walked on his own longer than most folks would have. larry didn't give up. larry liked his privacy, but loved inviting visitors in for small talk. how he wanted his weights with him, but relinquished that thought in trade for his guitar - and for the pictures on his walls !! larry was quiet yet inviting. larry was quick with a smile (or a 'good' joke!), smiling especially seeing his family. laurie and becky - you were so good to and for him. I loved looking at the drawings from Robert, Brianna and rayann. he was so proud of all of you. he loved you. and we need to remember his service to our country. thanks, larry. what a beautiful celebration of lary's life today. peace.
