Candy, Chris(topher), and Scott(ie),

Kathryn and Michael so enjoyed the Thanksgiving they spent with your family, father & grandfather. Wish I'd had the opportunity to meet him. May you have memories as unique as he seemed to be to bring you comfort and to keep him in your hearts.

Lynn, Candy and Dana,

I know I don't have to tell you what an awesome father you had. He was such an inspiration, a storyteller, and a loving, generous man. If Lars was sitting at your table or in your home, you knew it was going to be entertaining. I enjoyed listening to his stories of the early days in Houston. He was and is a "giant" in my mind.

I will always have a special place in my heart for Lars. He was a wonderful companion to my mother, Barbara. They both enjoyed and respected each other tremendously. It is hard to let go of the ones we love. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that his gift of life, love and laughter remain with the Manning family.
