    I love you Larry and I love you Sharon, your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren and all who experienced your love, open arms and acceptance no matter what! I grieve your loss and it is a loss to the history of the larger community. I have been clean in the Narcotics Anonymous community here in Fargo-Moorhead for 37 years. Sharon and Larry came to our recovery birthday celebrations for years and years and years. Thank you Larrry and Sharon for being our parents in so many absolutely loving and accepting ways many of our parents could not be. Most of our parents did not understand and for many reasons did not support our recovery or could not or would not. You, Sharon, and Larry did. No matter who we were, no matter the terrible things we had done and often continued to do. No matter if we responded to your unconditional love and acceptance of each of us in our worst and best. Through my tears of gratitude I have this to say. If there is something called unconditional love and acceptance in this world, Larry and you are it. I love you both so much. I love your children and grandchildren so much. I pray for all of you and thank you for bringing Larry and Sharon into our lives.

    My condolences to the entire Kukert family. I am so appreciative of all Larry and Sharon have done for Wes, and for us, his friends. It always warmed my heart to see you both at our birthday meetings, sharing your support, and the tears and laughs. Larry will be missed by many.
