Gary and I are thinking of you in the loss of your father and wishing there were words that could take away your sadness. I have special memories of the time when we were very young and spending time with Aunt Betty and Uncle Mick at the farm. May your special memories be a comfort to you at this time. We were glad that we had lunch with him when we were there in August.

I have so many fond memories of living “next door” to your family when I was just a teenager. So many good times and firsts for me…eating corn cooked on an open fire in your back yard, watching your parents run their McAllister Store from the garage, and just spending mindless hours enjoying all the interaction of your family. I remember your Dad taking us to the “farm” and although he was always busy, he also took the time to interact with “the kids”. Always pleasant, always helpful, always kind. They were good times, and always make for wonderful memories. My heart is with you.

I only knew Mr. Mick at the end of his life as my mom is also a patient at CHCC. He was always so pleasant, smiling, and cheerful, and I looked forward to seeing him every day. I enjoyed his reminiscences and stories about the USS Shangri-La. I am glad that my 20-year-old son, who is now serving in the Army, got to meet and speak with him. God bless you all.

My deepest sympathy to the family. I loved sitting and talking with him at Cross Roads. The stories he told me. I will miss you my friend. I guess the Good Lord needed a Navy man up there. God bless you, John

Over the past few years I have fallen in love with this man. My mother in law Ruby Barcus is at cross roads also. Lawrence has made me laugh so hard that I cried. He could put a smile on your face when you believed they were all gone. We had a wonderful time seeing him in Sept. and could tell he was getting tired.

I remember when his grandson got picked to play football for the life of me I can’t remember where. But when he tolds us the pride was all over his face. He took me in his room one time and told me his war storys he was a great man.

One time on our visits he was playing an organ in the coffey room and he had it loud. He was not trying to do a good job, just wanted to made sure that all could here. He keep playing when they said stop …he went right on.

My heart breaks today as I found out we lost him, as I know your hearts are broken into. But know I will never forget him, his witt, his laughter and his love for his children and grandchildern, as well as his love for life and service. He will be missed.
