  1. I am happy I was able to spend time talking to Larry and Marie at Sara and Hunters wedding recently and at my home the following day.
    I truly believe you had one heck of a welcoming party at those pearly gates.
    I will treasure all the stories you told and all those fun Haugen Reunions with all the Haugen boys.
    My deepest sympathies to Marie and families.❤️🇳🇴

  2. I will always have so many good memories of Larry. As my salesman of wine at Lons, he would be mortified with how I pronounced the wines!! He was a fun person to be around. Marie, I’m so happy you came into Larry’s life. I know how you feel now, Archie has been gone nearly 4 years. It does get better but how hard it is. Thinking about you.

  3. Ron and I want to extend our deepest condolences to you Marie and to your Family! Larry was such a fun loving one of a kind character … he will be missed by so many!

  4. Marie and Family,

Marie remember all your good times with Larry to help you in the days ahead.
    Take care.

  8. Dearest Marie,
    As a friend in your IAPAL family, my heart aches for you and yours. You were dearly missed this month, and rightly so. What a loss you are enduring! May the passing of time fill that void with cherished memories and the love of children and grandchildren.
    You are in my heart and prayers,

  9. I was able to watch the Memorial Service for Uncle Larry today, and it was typical of Larry- Great stories, Great Friends, and the Great Family that he Loves so Much! I especially liked the Songs that were Chosen: 🎶 Pretty Woman, Love Me Tender, and especially the last song: Lord, it’s Hard to Be Humble. . . 🎶 That made me Laugh😊 I’m sure Larry will be missed greatly by those left behind- but be Assured that He is in Heaven now- running around with my Dad & Bucky & Ronnie- and i’m sure the First thing he did after he entered the Pearly Gates, was to play multiple card games with Grandma ❤

  10. My heartfelt sympathies to Marie and family.
    This is Audrey, Larry’s first cousin, our fathers being twin brothers. What a wonderful video full of great memories of a remarkable man and his family. We all have blessed to be a part of the Haugen ancestry. The jest for life and sharing it with as many people as possible. Love of God, country and family, Norwegian heritage ( Lefse in particular) and passing the positive on.
    God Bless You!
