Mr. Hassenfratz and Carolyn, My family and I have you and Larry in our prayers. I was friends with Larry since 5th grade. Larry was a kind friend and was dear to me, as I know many people are telling you. Sending love and prayers to you and you both. May they angels deliver him to paradise with his beautiful Mom, and may you both find comfort in Gods love.

I remember Larry from being pledge brothers at Mizzou. At that time Larry was a junior and I was a freshman. Going through Initiation week with Larry was a great highlight. After school we never stayed in touch except through friends who later got married-Shawn and Leslie Berry. As pledge brothers Larry, Bill Davis and myself were roommates. I also remember Larry and a number of friends went to the Guns and Roses concert which ended early-on due to lead singer Axle Rose starting a fight with a concert goer who took a picture of him and the band. So we headed back to my house so everyone who was together at the concert could get their cars. I hope that Larry´s family will please accept my and my family´s condolences as when we were at school my parents always had tailgates for football games by The Hearnes Center for years I was there for school and Larry was always a welcomed guest.

Don and Carolyn and extended family and friends ~ My heart broke when Marilyn told me of Larry's passing. I sent the following to my family and friends .. "Prayers requested for all enduring pain ... for all who may be suffering pain or hurt or loss regardless if physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. No one of us can know or understand what any one person is experiencing. Many of us are familiar with the suffering that members of our families have had, even though it was not our personal pain, it has affected our live." ----------------------------------- We never walk alone ... Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV ... The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”. Larry is now sharing Eternity with his beautiful Mother, Lois!! I heard reference to this Quote on the "Babies of 9/11" broadcast Friday night and it seems fitting: "Grief never ends … But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love." AUTHOR UNKNOWN Have a blessed day, With love and prayers, Barbara, "Do what matters to God! ... and God will take care of the rest"

I remember back in June 1981, Linda and I were moving into an apartment near St. Mary's high school. Lois and Don were coming over to help us move in. Larry came too. He was 11, so didn't expect him to be helping. He sure proved us wrong--he was working hard and didnt stop until we were all done . His Aunt Linda and I were amazed. He was one hard worker. And he was cheerful about it, not complaining at all. After we were done and taking a break to eat some fast food, we found he and his Dad were going on a camping trip that night! We appreciated all of their help. Also, what I liked a lot about Larry is that when he asked how you are doing, he would stay there and listen. That is not that common in today's world, but Larry was not common--he was unique...and he will be missed. Rest in peace, Larry.

I am heart broken when I learned of Larry passing. I met Larry at Mizzou and we were fraternity brothers. Larry brought so much laughter and great times to our fraternity and our brotherhood. Larry love for love for life and having a great time was second to none. Larry, I will miss you and it has been such an honor and privilege to know you and to call you my brother. Don and Carolyn, my deepest sympathies to both of you and your family.
Dad left a message on September 8, 2021:
I could not get near Larry for the first two weeks because I caught Carolyn’s cold while we were staying at Dad and Mom’s right after Larry was born. But lately I could spend almost as much time with him as his Heavenly Father. My second favorite Christmas was when he got his electric train at the age of 5. I got mine at 5 and I guess his was kind of mine too. I am embarrassed that later he showed better control at Christmas when we were playing Monopoly and he had all four railroads and I was slowly losing about $5 every time around the board. We ate moldy sausage at scout camp thinking it was OK after we washed it off. We had beer and brats for breakfast in the infield at the Indy 500. We painted my car with brushes and he often had good suggestions, but this one was mine and it wasn’t good. We put so many new alternators on his car that he said “Dad, in order for me to have a car like this, I have to have a Dad like you.” We upgraded our seats late at the ballgames as he introduced me to his friends who were ushers. He was traditional and involved and will be deeply missed.

Had to stay away from Larry for the first 2 weeks because I caught Carolyn's cold at Dad's when were were both staying in Joan's bed while Larry and Lois were still in the hospital. Second best Christmas was Larry getting his electric train at age 5, I got mine at 5. We ate moldy frozen sausage we thought was ok after we washed it. usher friends.

Don and Caroline I am so sorry to hear about Larry and that you had another loss earlier, it saddens me to think how you must feel but I like to say “I hope the good memories will be helpful in getting you through this time. I went school with Larry starting in grade school and while most of us have lost touch, (i did just talk to him recently regarding HS gathering) I would like to think that grade school group is still special, we grew up together and shared a lot of first. My prayers for Larry and all of you.

I met Larry my first day of college and we lived together for the next four years. He was a constant source of laughter, friendship and support. He was absolutely one of a kind and I'm so thankful to have spent those years with him. Countless memories from a man who loved his family, friends and fraternity dearly. R.I.P my friend.

Linda left a message on September 7, 2021:
Larry, you are so missed. You always had a big hug and grin for everyone.. We remember taking you to the Brewery one time and showing you where John worked, you thought everyone was cool and all John's co-workers thought you were cool too. Every time we would see you, you would ask how our stereo was doing, since we had the same brand and year, even the same salesman! Be at peace, Larry. We love you. Your Aunt Linda and Uncle John.

Larry, you were so much fun to be with with your clever sense of humor. I remember so many fun times with you. You were loved so much by so many. It hurt to see you struggle while bravely battling your illness. I believe you are with your beloved mom, getting closer and closer to God. It's comforting to know you are no longer in the constant torture that your illness kept you in. I pray for comfort for all who loved you, Larry, especially your loving and dedicated dad, Don, and your loving sister Carolyn, who are bravely taking care of you, even now. Love forever, Aunt Marilyn
