I was blessed to get to know Larry over the past year while being his home care nurse. At our last visit on June 3rd we sat out on his porch and enjoyed a nice long talk while watching his beloved dog Novala play. Then while I made my last visit with him in the hospital, he woke up and saw me and he smiled and he made the sweetest face ever. I will cherish that moment always. Thank you all for the privilege of taking care of him. May you take comfort in knowing he is at peace and that he will be with you in your hearts until you meet again.
