Aunt Sue, I wanted you to know just how much Uncle Larry has meant to me and my family. I remember patio blocks being put down around the pool and Uncle Larry was there to help my father and husband. Also, the time we moved to East Haven and he volunteered to help us move. I remember Christmas' with Santa, Easter and silver dollars. He was a kind, generous and gentle man. He will be missed but will always be remembered with fond memories.
Elaine
