In Loving Remembrance of Larry Hatter

I was younger but I remember you and your Mom is our honored Gold Star Mother at the VFW Post 2250 in Hornell, NY. You are not forgotten, I remember and thank you for your service at a time when America was in an upheaval. I remember the late 60's, early 70's and Vietnam. Our boys were soooo very young and sooo many did not come home.

Always remember, you did not die in vain and you are our Hero every day. You are buried near my husband, who was a Marine but did not die in war. So, when I go to the cemetery, I always say a prayer of remembrance. May you rest in peace always ... God bless you and your family always.

From a friend of his family,
Kimberly Clifford Wood

Larry, you are so greatly missed.
So many years have gone by now and there is still a void in our lives.
You were only 21 and I often wonder what if...
What would you be like today.
Soon you would be reaching retirement age and taking life easy.
How many children and grandchildren would you have had?
Our lives went on ... but you're still in our thoughts every day.
Miss ya, kiddo!

Love you
your sister
