Obituary Add details
Andrew Jenson, a speaker, had this to say, "I have learned to love Lauritz Larsen, because he has been a wise counselor to me. Here lies a man who would sacrifice about anything for his friends. He spent the best part of his life as a missionary. The persecution and trials suffered in Denmark due to hatred for Mormons, while imprisoned, were almost more than one could bear. He labored to establish peace and good will to all men. He was a son of the North who has
honestly gained a reputation of making a good and loyal citizen in his adopted
America. True his heart beat as warmly for the land of his birth. "
