He gave his Life for Me
Many of us share the grief and shock of Larry’s transition. He was an exemplary husband, unfailingly kind friend and community member of Pacifica. Always willing to share his gifts and insights while supporting individuals in whatever they were going through. He will be terribly missed by his wife Claudia and many of his friends and neighbors.
Everyone got to witness what a devoted husband he was to Claudia until the end. When his wife got swept away by violent rip currents near the Pacifica pier on Tuesday afternoon on February 9, he came to her rescue. And we are all deeply sorry about his passing in attempting to save her. We are all proud and take comfort in knowing that we will never forget this wonderful man and his heroic actions.
Claudia and Larry shared a wonderful life for 20 years together and spoke about their plans for the future of retirement and the enthusiasm they had for each other getting ready for that. And some of us even shared their dreams to build as our own.
Such a sudden loss is difficult to understand, but we hope this is also an opportunity to celebrate Claudia’s survival and showing her the gratitude and care she is in need of receiving now for her own recovery. Her survival of being in the beast of waves crashing upon her, towing her under several times and pushing her out to sea is beyond our comprehension. Surviving this ordeal is a true blessing of the Lord and telling of a fearless strong individual that resides in Claudia. Please show her that you are proud of her strength in the ordeal by contributing to her recovery. She has dedicated her whole life to nursing and has mentored many professionals in the field and encouraged them through her cheerful expertise. To get her back on her feet and allow the trauma healing to begin, we would love your support during this mending time and a helping with financial obligation that need to be met. A survivors trauma is not an easy task, the last thing any family wants to worry about is finances. Nothing can replace Larry in the lives of his loved one; however, making sure that his widow is cared for is a gift we can give to honor him and her survival. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts in advance for your generosity. May your prayers and compassion be a reminder of the good in the world. Let Claudia know she is not alone and that we share her grief.
Over the past few days I have reflected on the many beautiful memories Larry and I have had over these short 20 years. Since his cancer diagnosis we lived each day as if it could be our last together. We no longer said good bye, we left each other with "Good Light" to remind each other that we must live our lives in the Light of Knowldge, the Light of Joy, and most definitely in the Light of Love. He is the Light of my Life for he gave his very being to me and now gave his being for me. May our Love be that Light that shines out into the world to uplift and heal those who are in need.
Claudia Lee Moore, a very grateful wife.
We invite you to come for the healing Light of a great man ,yes it still shines, and closure for the end of this part of his journey. He is going to the next level of Being truly Human.
Thank you so much for your support. It has sustained me not only financially,but spiritually as well. I am adjusting day by day. I'm determined to not allow grief to overcome the truly blessed life I have. The life Larry and I have is so beautiful. I learn daily how many people our love has inspired. Can anyone ask more than to show others that a trie love is possible? I am sad to not have him physically present, however, i find his spirit surrounds me everywhere I go. I recently read in James Hollis' book 'Swamplands of the Soul.' There he describes grief as a means to hold on. He says to learn to let go and know this life is tempory, is our only true option to depression. That just made so much sense to me. So I am comforted in seeing the broader side of Life, and surrender my soul to the Light. I choose to walk in peace. That does not mean I will not miss him, just that I can walk my journey knowing this is all tempory. The Love Larry and I have is eternal and outside time. Bless you all, Peace, Health, and Harmony. Claudia Moore
I just need to let you all know how very greatful i am for your prayers and support. I cannot begin to describe the feelings i have. They are so varied and strong. All of you have helped to ease this very difficult financial time I am experiencing. However, it is your love and compassion that fills my heart with hope and strength to just keep moving forward. Larry and I lived and loved deeply and passionately so I am working through the everyday moments that are now so different. I cry at the oddest times...in line at Walgreens., at our doctors office, just waking brings the many memories we shared. My 'Baby' sister has been a Rock! She flew back to her busy family last night, but she left me so much more balanced and even peaceful. It is the support and beautiful comments you have all shared that will bring me to the next level of a deeper, broader life, the one I will journey without my Beloved on this plane. I believe he is still with me...one with me. I speak to him nightly as I offer my prayers to The Father that you all will find Peace in your life, experience a love as powerful as I have with Larry, and in doing so have the Joy you so deserve! Blessings, health and Harmony to you all. With gratitude and humility, Claudia Moore
Dear Claudia, so, so sorry for your loss.... my heart is with you in this difficult time... what an extra ordinary beautiful being he is.... I'm sure he is surrounding you with light and love all the time, as he always did... so much love and big, big hugs
Sending healing thoughts and prayers to you Claudia
