Larry was a gentle soul, and seeing him work faithfully in his garden was a treasure. He created beauty and relished his serene home - rest In peace, Larry.

We remember with such great fondness the smart, sharp and funny Larry with the quick wit and tremendous love for sports. He was a huge golf and baseball fan with interesting and terrific memorabilia. Our dinners out with Sue and Larry were capped off with a sly grin and a witty remark from himself. We cherish our close friendship with Larry and Sue, and we treasure the memories which keep us smiling and saying to each other, "Remember Larry's great comeback?" We'd be chuckling all the way home. Sue and Larry are now together in Heaven and loving the fact that only 2 1/2 days separated them from each other.
