Dear Paula and family. My heart aches for you. I truly can say I know how you feel. I wanted so badly for Larry to heal so you would not be facing this journey. God never takes you unless your role is fulfilled in His plan. Some things we will have answered when we reunite. Until then be kind to yourself and know that you will remain in my prayers. Ps all of my FB friends and family prayer groups wanted me to send their condolences. They plan to keep your family in their prayers as well. Love ya cuz. Deb
