  1. We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

  2. Lucille, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how committed you were during Larry’s illness and I’m sure he appreciated all the time you spent with him and for being his advocate when he could no longer be his own. I am relieved to know that you were at his bedside when he left to be with our almighty God. Remember all the good times you spent together for the past six years, especially prior to his illness. I admired Larry for treating you like his princess; vacations, concerts, dancing and just being there for each other. I witnessed how he replaced your emptiness by bringing back the old Lucille who I have known for almost 50 years. As always, I will continue to be there for you, so don’t feel alone or lost as you will remain a part of my humongous family despite your many names, LOL. Chris, Christopher, Nicklas, and I will pray for Aunt Lucille to overcome your sadness and bless you with many years of fond memories of Larry.

    I am at your side as always – Love you Thelma Zapata and Family

  3. Lance, I wish I could be there tomorrow to give you and your family a big hug. Anyone who has lost a parent feels your pain and can certainly sympathize but its so hard because we can’t do anything to lessen that pain. I sure wish I could. But I can tell you to let the tears flow now. Feel your grief and let it wash over you so then you can begin to heal over time. I know your dad would not want you to stay sad for too long. He was such a beautiful person. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Larry and I always said that we were first and second cousins. His parents introduced my parents. His father was my mother’s first cousin; his mother was my father’s sister. Larry and I loved each other and kept in touch even when he lived in Alvin; and I, in Dallas. After his divorce from Catherine, he devoted himself to his children, but always seemed lonely. Then, he met the love of his life–Lucille. I rejoiced with him when he and Lucille married.

    Lucille, your love for Larry will never die. You’ll always have the memories of your travels with Larry to France and Italy and the cruise from Galveston, your fun in exercising together, your and Larry’s devotion to your church and church members, and most of all your honeymoon trip to the Grand Canyon. No one even approached you in your support of Larry during his illness. I am so grateful that you were with him at the time of his passing. He’ll live forever in your heart.

    George and Lynn Pollak
