    Praying for peace in the Middle East, Ukraine, and around the world.

    Deepest Condolences

    Oh Barry, I'm so very sorry to hear of dear Larry's passing. What a very special man he was indeed, not only a beloved member of the family, but for you, a loyal friend and mentor, a source of encouragement and support over the many years. And I have no doubt that Larry took great comfort having you, along with so many other family members there by his side during his final hours: holding his hand, sharing special memories and even a laugh or two, you letting him know what a positive force he has been in in your life. I'm sure that was very hard for you, Barry, but such a loving gesture. Stay strong, my friend, leaning on friends and family for support during this very difficult time.Thank you for the links, Barry, and please pass along my deepest sympathies to your Mom and the entire family.Love,Sandra

    Dear Barry, I'm so sorry to read of the passing of your dear brother-in-law Larry Bowen. What a very good, kind, thoughtful, treasured relation and friend of so many he was! He did so many good things for so many special people over the years. How wonderful that so many of those very special people were around him during his final hours, sharing memories and stories and smiles and tears and tenderness and love with him.

    Thank you for sharing his story and those links with us, Barry. My deepest sympathy to you and your Mom and all Larry's family and friends who love him and grieve him and will miss him so much. May your precious memories and keepsakes help to bring you comfort.

    Love, Pat
