Larry was the best man at our wedding in 1956. We were friends when we were young and had the world and all its pleasures ahead of us. Linda and I have been talking about all of the adventures we shared. Glorious memories.

Our amazing brother would tackle any project large or small and the finished product would be perfect. He lived his life that way. The most important thing he gave to all of us was his love. He will live in our hearts forever.
