Gina Brown A Great Loss December 20, 2007

Mr. Northup was a wonderful man who touched the hearts of everyone.

 He was my counsiler in Albuquerque Job Corps back in  1994. He was always there when I needed him. Also quick to put me in my place if I got out of hand. I respected him and now I think I looked at him as a father figure. When your 1000 miles from anyone you know, The friends you make you never forget

 I remember the day I left Job Corps. I had not completed my training and he was very upset with me for leaving. I never forgot him. I remeber a bunch of us students attacking him his first day back at work after having a heart attack. We were so excited he was back.

 He truely has touched my life and even though we haven't spoke since 1994. He will always be in my heart.  Thank you Larry for keeping me in line, I will never

forget you. You are truely an angel.

Steve "Gator" Johns My Friend Lurch May 25, 2007

My Friend Lurch,

I met "Lurch " in the early 70's.  We were stationed together at Kirtland AFB. I was an airman, him a SSgt.  My nickname was "Gator" because I grew up in Starke, Fla. He was Lurch-no explanation needed. I looked up to him-in more ways than one!  He was an awesome mechanic and a true friend.  He would always work on my Mach I, and I in turn would go dune buggy riding with him in the Sandia mountains.  If I visited in his room and could not walk out because of the ‘liquids’ I found in his room, Lurch would gently carry me to my room.  If I needed anything, Lurch was there. He was warm and gentle, a fun-loving friend that I miss. We lost touch and after 30 years he found me and we got to see each other again-what a sweet reunion.  Mara, my condolences to you and your family. May God comfort and bless you all. Revelation 7:17

Marilyn Oliver Our condolences April 11, 2007

I didn't get a chance to meet Larry, but through Maura, I was able to share a small part in his life.  My family and I, are so sorry for your loss and send our condolences to the Northup family.

 

Father of mercies and God of all consolation, You pursue us with untiring love and dispel the shadow of death with the bright dawn of light.

Comfort this family in their loss and sorrow. Be their refuge and their strength, O Lord, and lift them, from the depths of grief into the peace and light of Your Presence.

Rod Holland Fellow V.N. Vet. April 11, 2007

Larry was, and still will be part of our P.T.S.D. Group that meets every Tuesday. Larry was usually always there first. He was always a very happy person , even though there were times that he had problems with the VA, or the phone company.

From the time Larry became ill until he left us, he was a man of courage, happiness, and dignity. Even though Larry wasn't at our last 2 meetings, he was part of everyones personal thoughts, and feelings, and how he has affected our lives.

Please accept my condolences, and may you find peace in time.

Shanae Condolence April 9, 2007
I only met Larry a couple of times and after he had already fell sick, I quickly became attatched to his wife Maura who is a short little Italian with the biggest heart of anyone I know. Through their times near the end they were still smiling and hoping for the best. I am honored to have got to meet Larry the man who kept Maura on her toes.

Jim Weins Fellow Vietnam Vetern April 7, 2007
Although we never met, but we talked and new each others problems with cancer, we will always be brothers, and some day we will meet and be with our other Vietnam brothers in heaven, for only we will know what true botherhood is really about. My heart goes out to you and your family. Your brother in arms forever, Jim Weins. 
Debbie Cox Mercer Lord He made he laugh April 7, 2007

I am sorry for this loss of this wonderful father, husand and man who could make you laugh in spite of yourself.  Shame on our Government, for not helping soldiers lives be better instead of worse, some gave all, all gave a lot. 

 

Your world has changed with this loss, & it will never be quite be same.  So in many way you are looking at your new world as though you are looking through the eyes of a child.  Let the child in you view your new world with respect, and wonder for the human sufferage that is ours to create and ours to make improve by our own actions.  DL

Silvia e Orlando Condoglianze April 7, 2007

Carissima Maura,

con grandissimo rammarico stamattina abbiamo ricevuto questa triste notizia.

Siamo molto dispiaciuti per il tuo carissimo marito!

Vi siamo vicini col pensiero e con le preghiere.

Cerca di farti forza e non abbatterti, pensa che ora il tuo caro marito non soffre più e che comunque la sua anima sarà sempre al tuo fianco.

Non sono brava a parlare in queste tristi situazioni , ma sappi che sarai sempre nei nostri pensieri e se verrai in Italia sappici dire qualcosa.

Un forte abbraccio da Silvia e Orlando
