I remember Uncle Larry as a gentle giant. When I was a little boy he seemed so tall! Although he and my Dad had a strained relationship, he never caused me to feel anything other than loved when I was around him. Greg, Sharon, and the family will be in my prayers. I love you all and I am sorry for your loss.
