  • Virginia and Walter enfolded our family with love when we were neighbors in Mesa. It wasn’t long before Steve and I became their unofficially adopted kids, and our kids became grandkids. Mom Larrabee folded clothes and helped around the house while Dad Larrabee cooked delicious meals to help out when our youngest son was born. There are lots of wonderful memories that extend past those Mesa days and have sustained us through a physical separation of more than a thousand miles. A favorite one is Mom’s habit of singing a special “Happy Birthday” to us on our birthdays. We will miss talking with you this Christmas, Mom. And we will celebrate your birthday in a joyous remembrance that you are spending it with your beloved eternal companion.
