  1. Larry will be missed. Cathy, the two of you made such a handsome couple and one only had to be around you for a short while to see the devotion you shared for one another. Your beautiful and caring children are a testament of your love. That devotion and love will live on forever. Embrace the memories, and continue to enjoy the legacy of a wonderful man. May you find comfort in this and also in knowing that he is thriving in his heavenly home.

  2. Sending all my love and condolences to the entire Mehok family. I still remember coming over to hang out with Carrie all those summer days over 20 years ago. Mr. Mehok was always cracking jokes and making us laugh with his witty humor. You guys have always been such a strong family and I know you have so much support in each other. Carrie just know that you are your daddy’s little girl and he’ll always be watching over you. Love always. Heather

  3. Greg & Kimia,
    We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers. We know how hard it is losing a dad and we know your dad was a warm, funny and genuine person. He raised such a kind, sweet and wonderful man in you Greg! I know you have a close family and will take comfort in that. Your dad and mom have done a wonderful job raising all of you and you will have that forever. May God’s grace and love be with now and always.
    Love,
    Rita & Jim

  6. Dear Aunt Cathy, Mark, Greg, Eric, and Carrie,
    My deepest sympathies, prayers, and love go out to you at the loss of Uncle Larry.
    My sister, Michele, my brother, Michael, and I were especially fortunate to have met Uncle Larry when he first dated Aunt Cathy and got to enjoy nights out with them and Poochie and Tom going to St. Vincent football games and Mary Coyle’s Ice cream.
    To young nieces and nephews those memories are special and last forever!
    Sorry we will be unable to be with you in Atlanta but you will all be in our thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
    All our Love,

    Chris and Pam Tavolier and Family

    in the thoughts.

  14. Dear Cathy,

    Yesterday I learned of Larry’s recent passing. Had I known, I would have attended Mass at Corpus Christi.
    I understand the deep sadness during the holidays because my Dad died on the same date many years ago.
    Sincere condolences to you and your family.

    Sincerely,
    Georgeann Levy
