Sorry for your loss. In the Bible we can find the condolence that we need in moments like this one. For example in Revelation or Apocalypse 21:4 says that “God will wipe out all tears from eyes and death will be no more”. Also in Acts 24:15 talks about “a Resurrection”. Jehovah God soon will clean this earth by eliminating all the bad including death. Also he has the desired of resurrecting our loved ones. WWW.JW.ORG

We are all so very sorry for your loss. I remember spending time with the Link family when we were kids. In Laredo , Bruni, Realitos, all over south Texas. We always had a great time and everyone was very nice. Larry especially. We were only a year apart, so hung out together a lot. He was a great friend and cousin, we will all miss him. Rest in peace my friend.

Our Condolence to the Link family, in high school and after Larry was my best friend we went our different way in life.We where classmates play football basketball and track. We share space next to each other every day. We went on double dates. Besides being our linebacker and fullback Larry was our kickoff man and he would always yell before the kickoff Andale Andale Heja. Larry had the best relationship with his father. My payers are with the Link family and Laura his wife and daughter Claudia, he is resting in peace.

Please accept our condolences in memory of Larry. He was the greatest friend you could have. As a partner, he was reliable and efficient. Larry helped the Dodier Family with countless ranch chores. We deeply appreciate it. We will all miss him and his jovial friendship. May his family find a comfort zone in knowing Larry was a good man and a great friend. Love, J. O. & Janie Dodier

Laura Link and Nick and Nora and all family members, there are no words to say at this very sad and difficult time except that Larry is no longer in pain or suffering. Larry is at peace and reunited with family and loved ones. With all my heart and love, my sincerest condolences and prayers.

My sincere condolence to Larry Link's family. We attended United High School together and I considered him a good friend. He was a cut up in class and always high energy. He was tough on the football field and a big asset to the Longhorn team. Everyone liked Larry as he was always happy, in a fun mood and tried his best at everything. I have many fond memories of our time at United High School. Larry was a great guy. Carlos D. Vigil

Uncle Larry was an awesome uncle. Always happy, always lively. I always enjoyed talking with him and listening to his stories and opinions. His laugh was maniacal and contagious. We miss him so much already. We love him and Aunt Laura.
