Both Ben and I loved your mom. She sat with Ben while he was growing up in church so I could be in the choir. She was so faithful with her little charges and taught them so well in Sunday school. She was a wonderful person and I was sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers are with all of the Justice Family.

Larry and family, we are sorry to hear of your mom’s passing, but take comfort in knowing she has reached the goal we are all striving for. We never met your mom, but I know she raised a super man of God in you. You were such a great spiritual mentor and guide to us in our years at Northwestern, and 28 years ago this month you officiated our wedding. We love you Larry and you are in our prayers.
