Paul & family:
I’m so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Our loss is definitely Heaven’s Gain.
Lawrence has blown his horn at our house at 10:30 am for more years than I will mention. He was such a good friend to all and he and Billy solved the world’s problems during lunch with Blue Bird and Joe & Gay.
May God wrap his arms close around you during this stressful period. Cherish those wonderful memories and know that we are thinking of you with love.
Tony, Paul, and Todd,
I am so very sorry to hear about Lawrence. I loved him… he was like a second father to me. I tried many times to see him when I would come back to Fayetteville, but I always missed him. I would leave a note so he’d know I tried. He was a wonderful man, and he was so good to my Mom and Dad. I don’t know what they would have done without him. You have my deepest sympathy. If there’s anything I can do to help you, please let me know.
