Not sure what to say?

To all of Larrys family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Larry was my neighbor for 26 years and he will be missed dearly. Im sorry I could not attend the funeral as my son was married the night before and I had a post wedding brunch at my house that day. May your memories of your father always bring a smile to your face, warmth to your heart, and blessings for each of you And your extended families.

Burrel Sumner and daughter Jolene Hamilton

My name is Jolene Sumner Hamilton and I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am for your profound loss. My father, Burrel Sumner will be greatly saddened to hear this news. Dad will be 98 on Sept. 3rd and he will really miss hearing from his treasured friend Larry. Larry was so good about writing to Dad and always addressed him as "The Honorable Marine Capt. Burrel E. Sumner". They were both enlisted while in VMF 422 and their numbers are getting smaller and smaller. They called...

Myles family,
I first met your dad while volunteering for the Honor Flight and soon realized that we both had worked at M&I and knew many people in common. I always had a great time hanging out with Larry and listening to his stories or trading updates about mutual friends from the bank. I will miss seeing his smiling face! You and he will be in my prayers

While he had a good, long life, filled with adventures, it sure was hard to say goodbye to this particularly special soul. We always looked out for Larry on our block, and he assuredly was looking out for us. Our children still hold sacred their stashes of crisp $2 bills, saved up from all the years that Larry welcomed them at the door when soliciting their popcorn, Christmas wreaths, and Girl Scout Cookies. We neighbors gathered for a Spotted Cow in his honor the day after he passed and know...

Sincere condolences to the Myles family from Cathy, Marylou, Bonnie and Tim Burns.
We will always remember Larry as one of the most sincerest, and kindest people ever.
Always has a smile on his face.
We will miss him.

My brothers and I grew up across the street from the Myles Family in Whitefish Bay on Idlewild Ave. Larry and Rosie were as close as friends can be with my Mom and Dad.
In the '50s, I remember so fondly the rowdy Block Parties, the Pool Parties and the renovation of our basement into a wonderful "wreck room" by the neighborhood Dads. I believe Larry was in charge of shellacking the knotty pine paneling, and a fine job he did!
In the late '50's, I occasionally babysat...

With sincere sympathy on the loss of such a fine man. I had the pleasure of knowing him through my mother Mary Ann Krygier Malia who remained a close friend of Larry and Rosemary. Blessings to all of you from my own days at Dominican High School.

Four Marines at an Honor Flight!

I was looking for Larry today at Irish Fest. Now I know why I did not see him, as he is at the ultimate fest of the Lord. Larry and I worked together at M&I Bank many years ago. We often saw each other at St. Monica Church. I will always remember Larry as a gentleman who loved his family, his faith, and his service in the Marines.
