Terry, Kevin, and Renee: I just saw the posting on FB and was immediately brought to tears. Can't put into words the importance of all of you and the impact you have had on my life. From our earliest memories visiting the cousins from so far away to the realization that Grandma Corbett had such an impact on your lives, we are truly family. With Larry's passing, I'm sure he's in a better place. God Bless all of you and know you're in my prayers & thoughts. Love you all.

Many years ago Larry was a baseball pitcher and I was a catcher. Catching his fastball was a frightening experience. They came roaring from the mound and often they hurt my hand - even with a thick catcher's mitt on. He had tremendous speed but his control was unpredictable (which terrified the batters). I marvelled at his raw power. He was born strong and when he played football he relished taking a few players over the goal line with him. I had not seen Larry in over 50 years but I alawys remember his enthusiasm, his love of competition and his tremendous athletic abilities. My condolences to his family on his death.

Larry was a dear dear friend and I am deeply saddened by his passing. I remember the first day we met, we were ten years old and we have been good friends ever since. We called ourselves the Damon Road farm kids and wore the title proudly. I will miss him a lot, R.I.P. my old friend. Kev,
