    As many know----Larry met with the most dreadful fate know to man---The loss of a young child---

    Larry had four sons---

    Nicholas

    Matthew

    Arron and Chris

    Matthew is now deceased---

    There was a very serious accident in a snow storm where the boys were stopped in line---A very fast moving suv was coming up behind and rear ended the boys car,killing Matthew and serious injured Nicholas and his girlfriend---

    Nicholas seems to be O.K. but the girlfriend is still very serious

    Arron and Chris were not involved----

    Larry and I are very good friends----He is a very special guy---Very humble--

    Just a young 44 yr old struggling to raise his family.

    His life is based around trap shooting---Hunting and fishing with his boys.

    His boys are one less now.

    I'm writing this in his behalf----You can imagine the grief he is going through.

    The driver of the SUV had no insurance and he now has many bills---

    I'm now asking to help with a donation to help Larry--

    We donate to many causes but here is a chance to help a family member of TSs.com-----He needs our help----I hope I'm not out of line asking but I know we all would have gone to the funeral if we were near and with a gift of some kind---That's just who we are----Any amount will help----Send to Larry @

    Larry Ranken

    335 Parker St

    Sycamore,IL

    60178

    With all my LOVE to Larry------

    No...you are not out of line by "asking" as a giving spirit is the most prized possesion a human can own. Check will be mailed tomorrow!

    Thanks SJB and condolences to you also.

    Helping folks like Larry is what real charity to our friends and neighbors should be about. I challenge all the other dealers to send a check to Larry. I'll leave the amount up to you...but dig deep! My contribution will go out in tomorrow's mail. My prayers for Larry and his family started when I heard about this tragedy and will continue...

    Bob Schultz

    P.S. Thanks for letting us know of Larry's need, southjblue.

    My check is going tomorrow. I remember when my brother, Robbie, got killed, in 1985, my mother has never gotten over it. It is the hardest thing to do, to bury a child. Our thoughts and prayers are once again sent. Charlie Henderson

    I would hope many more of the posters here would send something out to help this family. I don't know them, and I can't even begin to imagine the pain they are going through, but I want to do what I can to help them with my prayers and with a check.
