Hello and my condolences to Rich (still riding I'll bet)(I was besties with Ginny before she moved to Collegeville.) and too all his friends and family.

Larry, you were my “gentle giant teddy bear” as a cousin. I’m glad we talked a few times these past years and it made Mom happy when you’d call her. I hope you are at peace now and our Heavenly family welcomed you with open arms. You will always be remembered for your big heart and willingness to help anyone. Rest in peace my cousin, love you!
