Larry and Georgeann were like my own grandparents. They had that unconditional love that you could feel deep down inside. They were non-judgmental and supporting. I will truly miss them. I love you both granny and oompa, say hi to my Safta Shoshana and grandpa Eddie for me! And say hi to everyone else that I miss including talmadge & shanna!

Our prayers continue to go out to James & all his family. I consider them a part of my family. Georgeann & Larry were parents to me in every way that mattered. We miss them but yet are comforted knowing Dad is singing with the Heavenly Choir & Georgeann is dancing with the Angels. We love you all. God bless & comfort you in your time of need.
