Dear Aunt Jane, Devon & Family, Duanne & Family & Cousins & Family, I am sorry for your loss may your faith in God sustain you through this hard heartfelt time. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all along with my love. So many memories of life shared with Uncle Larry & his beautiful wife Jane who took me in as one of her nieces. Love Jane's biscuits they are the best. Spent so many years with Uncle Larry, Devon and Duanne growing up as family. Through the years even though we lived miles and miles away and even when life was busy and going non-stop I always thought and missed my family back in Maine. We had some great times at Old Nanny's and Gankses Camp and when we came home and camped out. Even though our family is now spread from one end of the USA to the other our love and care for each other will always remain. I know what you all are going through and how you are feeling lost both of my parents within 1 1/2 years. My deepest Condolences for your loss my heart aches for you all and I cried when I found out. Larry was the best Uncle anyone could ever ask for. He was a spectacular man, husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather, uncle and friend to many. Uncle Larry is a tremendous loss for all of us and many others. I am glad I got to see him and Jane and spent some time with them while I was home in Maine in 2017. Uncle Larry will be sadly missed and always fondly remembered and loved. Very sorry for your loss! Love & Miss You All!
Love Rhonda & John Clark
