Dear  Sister Kathy and Family,
We were so very sorry to hear of Brother Larry's homegoing.   We know he is well now, however, and is with His Lord Whom he loved and served so faithfully.  Current circumstances prevented us from attending his funeral, but we know God was with all of you during this time.  It's wonderful to be reminded that "God's grace is sufficient" for every situation that we face.  Be assured that you are in our thoughts and prayers.  Let us know if you need us at any time. Please stay in touch.
God bless all of you abundantly and be with you in a special way,
Carl and Jenell Mueller

May the family be comforted at this time of loss knowing Larry is receiving his heavenly reward. We were blessed to be in Israel with Larry many, many years ago.

Kathy, so sorry to hear about Larry.  It has to be so hard to give up a companion.  I pray that you will be blessed in knowing that he was a good Christian. Circumstances prevent me from being there for you, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers.  Be assured that if you need me later, I am a phone call away.  

Love, Sue Meadors
