Teresa, Maureen, Kathleen, Tim, Dan and Terry,

Your husband and father was an absolute joy to me, and I am so very sorry for your loss. Larry always had a smile on his face, quick wit, and a positive attitude. I loved that about him.

I cherish the hammer he sent to me. It was a reminder of a repair we worked on together when, in the middle of the night, the 15+ foot clothing bar fell down the night before Maureen and Bill’s wedding. We enjoyed the challenge together and had a lot of laughs.

Through the years you’ve all had a way of making me feel like family, and my heart goes out to all of you and your families. He was one in a million!

Love,
Candy
