  4. Larry and Family,
    Although I never had the opportunity to meet your mom, it’s as if I knew her through her children that I had the privilege of knowing, best of all, Larry. Her kindness, thoughtfulness, and wicked sense of humour was most likely passed on to you guys, and I was a glad recipient of those traits that Larry displayed throughout our friendship. Losing a parent is never easy, especially a mother, like many I have experience in this. The only thing I can say, is that time will heal your hearts, along with all the great memories. And as long as you all are here, she’s never really gone, as you are living representations of her very character. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that you all still have one another.
    With kindness,
    Eddie Kiffiak
