Being only two months apart in age and being first cousins, Larry and I shared a lot of memories, but one of my fondest is of one Christmas when Larry received a BB rifle and I received a doll. I just wanted to hold the rifle and he woundn't "share". I threw a temper tantrum and Uncle Earl, Larry's Dad, made him let me hold it . Once his Dad went back inside, Larry tried to take it back. I told him "NO!!!" Well, he walk toward me and I shot him in the leg with the BB rifle. It didn't really hurt him, but I got into trouble and from that time on, to Uncle Earl , Aunt Bonnie, Bobby, AND Larry, I was known as "Katherine Sue" as that is what my parents, N.B. and Mary Sue Malone called me when I was in "trouble"... like then. Throughout the years, Larry and I laughed about this and other times like Pappy catching us trying to ride Sam, the mule, when he told us not to do so, but that is another "memory". I will GREATLY miss Larry, but will see him again one day. Until then, I will carry him in my heart. Larry was truly a good man who loved his wife, Kathy, and his family. He was very proud of all of them. My prayers go out to them now and the days to follow. Katherine Sue.
