Not sure what to say?

We are sorry to hear of the passing of Larry Duffy. He was one of the choir members of the UAF Community Chorus for a number years. He was always upbeat and a joy to know. We, Dawn Clausen and I will miss our weekly conversations on flowers and current happenings with him. Rest in peace Larry.

I am sorry to hear about Larry. As the days pass missing him will be greater at times but with the many prayers and thoughts from all will help you get through the difficult days ahead.
May the God who binds up the brokenhearted comfort all who mourn sustain your family.
Isaiah 61: 1,2

I am sorry to hear of his passing. I am a vendor at the Farmer's Market and my young son and Larry took an instant liking to each other. My son would spend hours sitting with Larry, talking about all things under the sun. We will miss you, Larry and we hope you are enjoying your gardens and your books wherever you are.

May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who pass on, God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences. Psalms 16:15*

May you find comfort and peace in your memories of your loved one. My the God of peace comfort you. 2 Thessalonians 2, 16,17

Larry was the highlight of my years at the Farmer's Market. He was one of the kindest and most interesting guys I've ever come across. Spending time with him, hearing his stories, enjoying his humor, and gleaning as much as I could from his vast knowledge of horticulture was a gift and tremendously inspirational. Thank you Larry.

I'm so sorry for your loss. May the words of our dear heavenly Father bring you comfort and hope. (Psalm 9:9, 10)

Worked with "Duff" for 12 yrs at the Alaska Fire Service - he was one of the "good guys" & will be missed by all who knew him. Condolences to his family & many friends.
