    Theresa, it won’t be the same, not seeing the two of you together. Everywhere we went, there you both were. You were our inspiration…joined at the hip for not only this life, but also our eternal one. What would our kids and us ever have done without such happy, helpful neighbors and friend’s like you. Our years together flew by too quickly. We will miss Larry so very much. You will too, but what a wonderful ride you had, and what great children…they grew up into fine adults because of your loving care. Firm, but loving. And to think, you always had time for us to sit down and share a meal with you. We’ve never seen ANYONE make so many tacos in such a short time. At your house, it was “The more, the merrier.” We have you all in our prayers and thoughts. With love to your entire family. Hank and Mary
