Dear Joyce, Lance And Matt;
I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Cling to each other and the love and grief you now share and the healing will be smoother.
Mr. LaLonde was a very kind man, and was always nice to his little girl neighbor who was upset because Matt didn't want to play Cowboys and Indians anymore,or pull her in the wagon to Martin's store for a popsicle or penny candy. He tried to explain that Matt was too old to play with little girls, being a big boy in school now and such and walked me home. So kind.
My condolences, love and prayers, blessings to you all.

So sorry to hear of Larry's passing. It's been many years, but we still have fond memories from our early days in Potsdam with you guys. Never forgot those trips to Ogdensburg for a "Wimpy" burger - Larry's favorite. God Bless.
