I didn't get to know Larry very well, as his passing was so untimely. This makes me very sad, as I think we would have had much in common! The thing I will remember most about him is when he was when he was coming into the dinning room and I said how are you this morning, and he said " I'm on the greener side"! May God bless you, your on the "Greener Side"! Love Linda Spencer
