I want to express my sincerest sympathy to the Madeksho family because of losing Larry in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:25) For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address; myranj@centurytel.net

I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. The pain, grief and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times we need to go Gods word for comfort. Please take your Bible and look at what God promises for the future with regard to our dead loved ones. ( John 5: 28,29 , Acts 24: 15 ) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at JW.org. Sincerely yours, JW

Lawrence “Larry” Madeksho, 71, founding partner of The Madeksho Law Firm, PLLC in Houston, Texas, died October 29, 2016, due to a cardiac event. He was the second son after brother Maxim (now deceased) born in Detroit, Michigan, to Henry Madeksho and Mary Reilly. His family moved to Texas, with the boys growing up in South Houston. After graduating from South Houston High School in 1963, he went on to attend The University of Texas School of Business. Graduating with a BBA in 1967, he moved back to Houston. He married his college sweetheart, Elodia Martinez, also a UT grad, in 1968. Larry went on to attend law school, subsequently graduating from the University of Houston Law Center one month before the birth of his first child, Angela, in 1972. His son Christopher Lawrence arrived in 1975 and both children would later become his law partners. While attending college and law school, Larry worked as an asbestos insulator. Many times he would work side by side with high school friends, as well as their fathers, uncles, and other family members, in refineries along the Gulf Coast.

Shortly after forming a solo firm, Larry found his calling representing some of his former fellow asbestos workers and their families. Larry was a vanguard for the many people he worked with. A true friend to the working man. He never forgot where he came from. He dedicated his life seeking justice for workers who had been abused and discarded by corporations who didn’t care.

In later years he also became an advocate for abused and neglected animals by supporting the animal welfare organization founded by his daughter, ADORE Houston. His support has helped save almost 3,000 abused and neglected animals.

A funeral mass will be celebrated on Friday, November 4, 2016, at ten o’clock in the morning at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 3617 Milam, Houston, Texas 77002. A private family burial will take place at San Fernando Cemetery II in San Antonio, Texas on Monday, November 7th.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to ADORE Houston through their website www.adorehouston.org or their office at 5225 Katy Freeway, Suite 500, Houston, TX 77007. All donations are tax deductible.
