    Words will never express the loss that you feel. Nor will they express how we felt about Launo. I knew we would hit it off the first dinner party. So happy and outgoing and more generous than most everybody we know. We have all been honored to have been a part of both of your lives and happiness. He will forever be in our hearts and I know he will be watching over all 4 of you. You and your extended family are in our prayers. Much love.

  9. Wesley Porter says:

    As a former colleague of Launo, and thankfully, a friend, he will be sorely missed. His wisdom, experience, and consoling demeanor was an attribute hard to find in people in this day and age. Such a sudden loss is always a shock, but I have faith in the certainty that he is in heaven and his kindness, compassion, and general caring for his fellow man has left an impression and memory that will last for eternity. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences will be with his family and friends always.
