Send Flowers

Savoring the Moment

Five years ago, when Debbi Senko was teaching at an elementary school, her husband used to send her flowers at work. A lot. "All the women would get jealous and say, `Oh, more flowers for you,' " she said. "So one time, when he sent flowers, he included one rose for every woman in my wing."

Gallantry came naturally to Larry J. Senko, who grew up in tiny Donora, Pa., but had big-city sensibilities. "I lived in a city all my life, but he was more cosmopolitan than I," Mrs. Senko said. "He loved fast cars, nice dinners; he loved art." Mr. Senko, 34, also loved working in 1 World Trade Center, where he was an area vice president for Alliance Consulting.

But he also had a down-home side. He met his wife in a local bar; both had followed the Grateful Dead, and the two began going to shows together. Years later, Mr. Senko would wake up early on Sunday mornings to play guitar for their son Tyler, 2. "Recently he'd moved from the Grateful Dead to `If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands,' " Mrs. Senko said.

"We were just starting to realize our dreams," Mrs. Senko said, adding that they had just built a house in Yardley, Pa. In August, when Mr. Senko gave her a surprise birthday party there, they stopped to savor the moment. "We were looking around and saying how grateful we were for everything," she said. "Sometimes you don't get the chance to say that."

Not sure what to say?

I recall hearing about Larry's death in the World Trade Center at our Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International Conference held October 31- November 3 at the Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh International Airport Hotel. As Conference Chair I announced that our Society was collecting funds for his widow Debbi and toddler son Tyler.
I was very proud of my fellow genealogists. I sent a check for the amount collected to Debbi with a note shortly after our Conference.
Tyler is about the...

Remembering you again this year 2021. It’s been a horrible couple of years but today I remember what 9/11/2001 was like. I find people are forgetting what it was like. They are forgetting how we all pulled together then. We were so united back then - now everyone is just angry with each other. There is no respect for each other anymore. I will never forget to remember you on this day. I will forever associate you with every Grateful Dead song I hear. I will remember you playing music...

Larry, as long as we remember you, you are still here with us. We do. Rest in Peace.

Deeply sorry for your loss..

Larry, not a day goes by that i don't think about you. I remember our friendly competition about who was the strongest when we would work out together. We would always push eachother in the gym. You were such a good dude and how I adored your parents Eddie and Marge two of the sweetest people who ever graced this earth. How they loved you. I'll never forget when we were playing basketball at your house and you rained down a foul on kirk Bianchi and your dad was watching us and he said...

In loving memory of Larry Senko. I will never forget 9/11/2001. I will keep the Senko family in my thoughts and prayers.


My thoughts and prayers are with Debbi and Tyler today as we remember you Larry and all the other angels that surround us. May you forever rest in peace. We will never forget
