    Family, you have my condolences. Unfortunately, I am not able to be with you today as you come together to celebrate the life of Uncle Larry. I’d like to be of encouragement on today. Uncle Larry’s
    absence will leave a void that can never be replaced, however, this should bring us consolation because he has been set free from the grip that cancer had on his body and he is no longer suffering.
    For the Bible says that when we are in a convenient relationship with our heavenly Father through the relationship we have with Jesus the Christ, to be absent from the body is to be one with Jesus
    the Christ and we should take solace in knowing that one day we shall see Uncle Larry again. So now that Uncle Larry's work here is complete and he has answered the call to transition from labor to
    reward, let us join in with the heavenly host to rejoice and celebrate Uncle Larry as he takes his rightful place and rest in peace at the Master’s feet. I love you, and I am praying for you all. God
    bless and keep you. – Pamela Marsh, Billy Ray’s baby daughter in California.
