Lin notified me on Monday and I was so sad. Chad & Sue are here with me so we all want to send the family our hearfelt sympathy. Larry was a great guy and will be remembered by me for his "teasing" and sense of humor. He would get that twinkle in his eye and I knew he was going to come up with a zinger for me. I know you will all miss him. Love & prayers to all of you.
