Patsy and kids...I am so sad to hear of Larry's passing. I'm in South Carolina and won't be back home until late Sunday night. I feel terrible that I won't be home for any of Larry's services. Please know I love you, am praying for you, and will be thinking of you and there in spirit. I know God lives and loves us - each and every one of us and will not leave you helpless and alone. I know we will all be reunited with Larry when our sojourn on this earth is over. He's in a better place with his loved ones and definitely without pain. I love you all. My prayers are with ya'll at this time.
Larry, Lynda and I all went to Ben Lomond High. I am so sorry for your loss at this time.

Patsy and Family,
I am sorry for your loss. I pray that you will feel peace throughout this trial you are facing.
Love you and your family,
I am so sorry for your loss, but you know he is in a much better situation now!
I remember Larry as a classmate at Ben Lomond High School. I have fond memories of him and Lynda. Larry was certainly one of the good guys. I am so sorry for his family's loss and pray for their peace and comfort at this difficult time.

My dear Aunt Cora.
Larry's sweet wife, and family. I wish to personally express my love and appreciation for my dear cousin Larry. He was so very dear and close to me. He was always such a great spiritual giant in my eyes. Always thinking about and caring for others, which he did so naturally and sincerely. He made a huge impact not only in my life, but the life of my siblings as well. We wish to send you our love, our support, and our prayers to each of you during this time of transition.
God bless you,
Cousin Virl Osmond
Please send my wished to his family. We will send our prayers to heaven to help him there. Please tell Andy to say hello to us.
Peace be with you and your family...Your friend from Ben Lomond High School
Dr. Womack saved my wife's life. I know there is a spot in Heaven for him, and the Tribe will do a blessing and prayer ceremony for him this evening. God bless Larry. He is now a Angel of Love and Peace.
Neil and Family
I just heard about Dr. Womack's death. I had not heard of his illness or I would have tried to visit him. I appreciate all he did for me when I was not feeling well. I loved getting to know Andy and Chavela and hope they are doing great!! My thoughts and prayers are with you!
It seemed at first it was not his time to go, but then he was always wanting to learn and learn and learn, so why not continue this on the other side. I sure miss him. He knew more about health then most. May blessings be with Larry's family.
