Thinking of the Onstott family at there time of loss. Growing up in Milton, i remember Larry keeping his distance from Donnie,[Larrys Lil' Brother] and me. Seemed he tried to not get into trouble, as Donnie and i pushed the envelope at times. Larry was devoted to his Mother and Father, and a good big brother. I have lost contact in these many years, but have happy memories of those years. Rest in peace big Brother, and peace to the family.

Dear Wanda,
A sad time for You & Family But Just know that You are in Prayers! As you know, Larry was a friend & classmate since our early Milton days,,,Many good memories and Larry was always a Good & Kind person...I know He is at peace now. I was blessed to have known him and see him a few days before his passing..We held hands and with tears were able to say our goodbyes, and my parting words, as I kissed him on the forehead was, That I loved him and that when he passed-over to the other side(Heaven) to pls put in a good word for me! He smiled and said OK and that he loved me too....Larry will always be in my heart!
