Larry was a child hood friend we grew up together in Delaney Projects, we had so much fun together growing up he was like a big brother to me & my sister. My parents would trust the Anderson brothers around us because they were always polite and manerable. Well brought up. He grew to be a fine man respected and loved by all who really knew him. We had so much fun growing up, Larry I will realyl miss you may you rest in Heaven, your friend Sandra. Matt if you ever need a shoulder or someone to talk to please don't hesitate to call. My heart goes out to you and your brothers. I will be praying for your family. May God give you strength & peace.
