UPDATE: Photos of the man who died on our porch...(WARNING: Don't look if you think this will bother you)

Personally, I find this interesting, but, I know that some of you won't.
Also, I'm sure that Larry would not mind the photos (as I wouldn't either if it were me, as long as there are no naked body parts showing, and no pictures of me drooling or anything else terribly unflattering.)

The coroner said that Larry's autopsy would be late Sunday and the family should have that information on Monday. I'll update again when I know more.

Larry's son and daughter-in-law are with Larry's wife, and I believe another daughter is on her way to stay with her mother. The young police officer who delivered the sad news to Larry's wife (with an ambulance at hand, just in case) told us that she took the news very, very hard. William and I have been praying for the family.

We're actually glad that Larry chose our porch. William's Grandfather died in this house, peacefully in his sleep. This house has a very good "feeling" about it (good vibes)... and anyone who visits says that, too. A lot of love and laughter has filled this house since 1969 when William and his parents moved here from West Virginia. (It was built in 1922 by a family that we know nothing about.) William's Mother, step-father and Grandfather (an Italian immigrant, coal miner) lived very happily here for many years until their deaths (terminal illnesses).

Larry died on our porch Saturday, Oct 2, 2010


  1. An awful lot of men my age seem to be passing on to a less troubled placed these days. Must be in the air.

    Old Men

    People expect old men to die, 
    They do not really mourn old men. 
    Old men are different. People look 
    At them with eyes that wonder when... 
    People watch with unshocked eyes... 
    But the old men know when an old man dies.

  2. Looks like Larry was dressed for the day and wasn't planning leaving earth that day. Looking at your trailer in the driveway, I can see it wants to go!! Happy trails.

  3. Wow. Neat pictures!!

    Death bothers a lot of people but I have learned to look at it from an entirely different perspective. Death is suppose to be a celebration of someone life, regardless of their age when they go. It kind of goes along with the post I just wrote about titled "its a small world".


    "We're here for a good time
    Not a long time
    So have a good time
    The sun can't shine every day!"


    Thank you for sharing this special friend with us. He looks so peaceful. As if he simply is taking a nap on your porch. He obviously has always felt warmth and comfort in your home. Very sweet.

    Our sincere condolences go out to you and the family.


  4. wow! Very interesting. Did you know Larry? Was he your neighbor? So, he just decided to rest on your porch and never woke up? Did you discover him? I'll call you later.

  5. Death is a part of living. I'm sorry for Larry but he came to a friend's home (yours) to take his final journey. Gotta be some message in that.

  6. Maybe he wanted to spare his wife the trauma of seeing him die. Old dogs seem to know when it is time, maybe some people do to.

    Or, it was just that sudden. Either way it seems like he didn't suffer long. I hope I go as quickly.
