😡 love you, you are missed. I would give anything to have you here!!!

Hey “DADDY”…Well its been almost 2 years since you left us, I sure do miss you dearly. I think about you EVERYDAY and you are brought up in many of my conversations. I have so much that I want to tell you and cant but I will one day. I know you have been watching down on me and have been leading me in the right direction with my life. I feel your presence all the time. It feels like your sitting on my left shoulder telling me things. I love you and miss you dearly.
Been thinking about you a lot the past few days..still doesn’t seem real that you aren’t here. I was talking to a friend about you the other day and he kept saying over and over again how good of a man you were and all I could do was smile and say YES HE WAS!!!! I am so glad that I was able to say that i knew such a great man!!!
Dad, our sadness know no end
We can’t believe you’re gone
We’re grieving for you everyday, its hard to carry on
You were always there to support and care
When we needed a true friend,
How we’ll ever do without our dad,
We cannot comprehend.
You were our teacher and our quide,
Our dad, so good and srong
Your example will sustain us now,
And last our whole lives long.
We’re trying to communicate
We hope that you can hear
Expressing what we feel for you,
Helps us feel you’re near
Our memories of the times we had
Help the pain to go away
But daddy our lives wont be the same
We’ll miss you everyday.
A part of me went with you,
You left a gap too big to fill
You’re my father and my hero
I love you and I will always will.
Miss You & LOVE YOU
I Love You Daddy! I miss you, words cant even explain how I feel maybe thats why I dont talk about it. Wish you were here, but I know you are in a better place. RIP
Oh my…It’s almost been one year and I just still can’t believe it. I go into my phone all the time and just want to call you and talk to you and tell you things that I can’t or couldn’t tell my own father! You are still greatly missed by many many individuals! I hope to see you one day when I get to heaven! Until then, have a good time without me!
still thinking about you everyday. In times like this daddy you find out who is really true! And as you are looking down you are seeing what is going on. I love you for who you were and not for what u had. Its still hard daddy, but i know you would want me to be happy and live life to the fullest. Destiny & Aliah are growing up so fast and Aliah misses you very much. Daddy dont worry about us out here, we are your blood, we are your true family. We will carry the name and make it more known than ever. (Jarrett & I) I LOVE YOU, AND MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My husband and I have moved away from the Franklin area and just saw Larry Wayne’s obit in a back issue of The Tidewater News. We are so sorry to hear of Larry Wayne’s passing. I worked with him at Blake Chrysler back in the 90’s. He and Susan, Ashley and Jarrett were very good friends. I will be praying for you all as you try to find strength in this time.
