The Holt Family so wonderfull yet so cursed with grief
by Holt By Marriage
I am a Holt By Marriage And Proud to be part of such A Loving and wonderful family...What they have had to endure I am not allowed to write here though I wish that I could so that justice could be served.
This is my 3rd attempt to Write about Larry Holt.
Larry Holt was one of 5 kids raised the hard way though hard times by parents Lester and Shirley Holt. I was lucky enough to meet Mama Holt and be welcomed and accepted immediately. (Please excuse the mis-spells as it slows my thinking down)
When She Died I had no idea what to say to Paul, the baby of the family. I held him told him it would be o.k and though My mother had died before his I was completely unprepared to help him through his grief.
By the time that My father died (he had a stroke following congestive heart failure for years.)I was unable to grieve him openly as it would upset Paul terribly. (Paul had a stroke following a brain aneurysm 3 months prior)
So...When My Love My Life died 12-06-09 (coming up fast too fast) I had a double dose of grief. The shock was the best of the grief just walking around in a daze not sure of what going on unable to think.
Larry Holt, Paul's Older brother died this last Monday of Heart failure. I want to remember The Talkative Larry the one that was always saying I Love you little brother, The Larry that was a Hard worker and only cared about providing for his family and being there for his family when His Nephew Mike was killed while working on the family car.
Why must so much grief and sorrow be served to this family they deserve guardian angels looking after them, keeping them safe and it is this that I Pray for, that and the strength to get through the death of someone so close so wonderful.
I Miss you Larry, Say hello to My honey in heaven I know he was right there to greet you, welcome you.
And I thank you for letting me be part of this courageous, strong and loving family.
Proud to be: Hope M. Holt
