A long time friend-died yesterday
I got a phone call yesterday afternoon, that a friend of mine passed away. He was 70. He had been in ill health for some time and I had visited him in the hospital on different occasions . He had lung cancer surgery in 1999 and had open heart surgery last year. He had been in and out of hospitals and became very sick last week. He and I used to work together, play pool, his brother and I ran around together. I guess I had known him over 50 years. I saw his brother this morning and he said that Larry wanted me to do his funeral. Arrangements are incomplete currently but, they are to be made today and the funeral will probably be Thursday. I am honored when asked to do funerals for friends but, they are also tough to do, at least they are for me. So many memories, so many years, but, I am thankful that Larry was a Christian and I know his pain and suffering is now over and he is in the presence of the Lord.
