LAWRENCE JUSTIN SETORIE, SR. was bom on Sep-
tember 26, 1928 on the island of St. Thomas. He was the son
of Leo Setorie and Majorie Cochran. His elementary and secondary
education was obtained from the public schools of St Thomas.
He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army from 1940
to 1950. While serving his country he served in World War II. After
leaving the service Lawrence retumed home to St. Thomas for
a while. He traveled frequently between the U.S. and the Virgin
Islands, working various jobs as he traveled. At the time of his
untimely death, he was an employee of Investigations Unlimited.
He was an active member of the 20-year Veteran Color Guard.
He loved the soil and was always planting, and it is our eamest
belief that he will continue to nurture the soil as he always did.
On May 13, 1989, God called Larry to his eternal home. He will be
missed dearly. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.

To J.J.
The way you talked,
The way you walked,
I tried to imitate you.
You have not gone anywhere,
You are still here with me.
When you first called me J.J.,
I told you it was Jahmal
But you still called me J.J.
And I called you back J.J.
You will always be my J.J.
Forever and Forever.

Good bye J.J. from J.J.
Your grandson Jahmal



Mrs. Setorie, Tony, Tonia, Tina Roxanne & Robin,

Although I did.not know your father very well, I
join in your pain and sorrow.

Of course, my pain can never be as great as yours,
but I do understand and share in your feelings because
you are all so very dear to me.

I can only hope and pray that this pain which you,
along with the entire family, are experiencing may soon
be displaced by all your fond memories and in knowing
that your father is now truly AT REST.

Love Always,
Beverly A. Hermon Ventura
& Family
























Daddy,

When we were told that you had passed on we could not
believe it. Our hearts were filled with pain and sorrow
for we felt that you were unjustly taken from us and that '
we would never see you again. We now know that we were
wrong.

We now realize that the pain and sorrow will be comforted
and maybe even eventually replaced by the precious memories
which we hold in our hearts for you. We will remember the joy,
laughter and caring which you brought into our lives, AND WE
WILL KNiOW 'TAT ALL IS WELL.

We now accept that you were not unjustly taken, for your
Father in Heaven chose this as being "your time," and through
him WE KNOW THAT ALL IS WELL.

We now acknowledge that although you have left this earth,
you will always be with us, and yes, we will see you again
someday as our Father in Heaven has promised, AND WE ARE
COMFORTED BY THE FACT THAT ALL WILL BE WELL.

DADDY, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

Love Always,
Your Children

Larry Jr., Kenneth Sr., Ray, Antonio, Antoinette, Adrienne,
Roxanne, Robin



















A TRIBUTE TO OUR GRANDFATHER


Maybe we never got to know you personally, but please
know that we will always remember you.

We will remember you through the stories which our
parents share with us. Stories of love, joy, laughter
and yes, pain...

Stories which we will in turn pass on to our children
as we keep your posterity alive.

But Grandfather, although we will have these memories,'
we wish that we had you, and for that we will miss you
very much.

All our love,
Your Grandchildren

Daddy,

The called me and told me that you had died, and I
refused to believe it. I kept saying "Not my Daddy,
There's been a mistake."

When I finally accepted the fact that you were gone,
I became very angry. I was filled with hostility and fear.

But now I realize that you are not gone. You will
always be with me for I have you deep inside of me, and you
will always be there. Until we meet again, I am your
"SLIM."

MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

Daddy,

The first time you combed my hair in preschool I was proud
Because I knew you cared.

When in elementary school in the middle of a school day
you came to take me skating, I did'nt understand.
But somehow I .knw.you cared.

In junior high although you were tired from your night job
you took me to school every morning because I was afraid
to ride the bus.
That showed me you cared.

You often told me that your greatest wish was to live long
enough to see me graduate from high school; your wish came
through.

While in college I looked froward to your phone calls every
Thursday night. I will continue to look forward to your
calls because I know in your own way you will be calling me.

I love you Daddy and I'll miss you. .May you rest in pepce.

Your "Bom Bom" Robin
