About the Poem
This poem was written for my nephew, Larry, who was killed while riding a three wheeler near a highway. He was a very special and extremely handsome young man. Larry had a smile that would touch the heart of anyone who new him. He was 22 when killed. This is the poem I wrote for his funeral.

Some called him "little Larry",
some called him "squint"
His smile was his trademark,
wherever he went.
A room would brighten
when Larry came in
'cause the first thing you saw,
would be his grin!
A son and brother so precious;
a friend so true!
Whatever he had,
he'd share it with you!
A thought, a deed, a kind
word for a while
But always, oh always,
He'd share 'His Smile'.
Our hearts are breaking,
our thoughts are going wild!
We've lost our friend:
We've lost our child!
"But only for a while,"
I heard Jesus say
"He's been chosen for the
Hand selected by Jesus from
this 'garden of life'
Gone to Heaven!-He's
through with this strife!
Why is he gone?
God only knows.
But Oh what a treasure,
A "smiling rose!"
