Our dear friend Beth Carroll sent me this poem, which we feel expresses the way Larry lived his life and the thoughts he would share with us now.

To my dearest family and friends some things I'd like to say....
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven; here I dwell with God above;
Here are no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight;
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon, and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
I need you here so badly, you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do,
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you...in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
Because you're only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned,
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er,
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it--taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to God at night, "My day was not in vain.
And now I am contented...that my life has been worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile."

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go...from that body to be free,
Remember you're not going...you're coming here to me.
