The Holt Family so wonderfull yet so cursed with grief

by Holt By Marriage
(Tappahannock VA)

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

They are lucky
by: Zoe

They are lucky to have you
Your strength your ability to
Hold onto the very best memories
I have seen you write your own pain
And loss of your Paul you amaze how you
Seem to move so well despite such pain
Whatever this issue is I am sure you were front
And center in the fight
No on deserves the individual losses we have
Suffered. No family deserves to be decimated
By death and humiliated by the system
Your love of the family is evident
You teach well

Dear Hope,

Death is such a wake up call. We go thru our lives as though we own tomorrow instead of realizing that every day is a gift. I want to send my condolences to you personally for all your losses and secondly to your beloved family for all they've had to endure. IT IS SOOOO HARD!! You sound very courgeous and for that I want to thank you. I lost both my Mom & Dad within 5 months of each other all while I was nursing my only daughter back to health after THREE brain surgeries. Life can be soooo hard!!! I want to thank you so much for sharing for it is thru sharing that we all benefit and have an undergirthness (I know that is not spelled correctly) that helps us all!!! I will be praying for you and your family thru your time of grief and only pray that you will find that day when the dark cloud will 'surely' LIFT!!!
