It was an honor to know Larry. Sue, we first met you at a church meeting when we first joined. I was interested in Larry's opinion of the meeting. And I looked forward to his perspective on meeting and events to come. Larry was a fighter. He'd be the first to stand up when he felt he or someone was being wronged. His determination was still strong--as I witnessed at the last early service gatherings at our house. Also his ornery smile never faded. Being a vet there is a special place in my heart for Major Larry Nishikawa. I will especially remember him this Veteran's Day as he is in a special place granted by God.
