I have known Larry from the time he and Judy married. Judy's family moved to an a joining farm when we were in 6th. grade, so we have been friends forever. Our kids spent many days at the Beach together when they were young. We have continued our friendship over the years. Larry was a great guy who loved his family, he will be missed so much.
