Larry was my brother Danny’s friend and he visited us frequently in Cromwell. I was a small child, 7 or 8 years old and I was so fond of Larry. He used to call me an Indian princess and I think he treated me like one. We used to roast marshmallows outdoors and if Larry was there he would always hand me the small box of Campfire Marshmsllows ( they did not come in a bag then but in a double box of 6 each and they tasted so much better) so I could choose my marshmallow. I am saddened to hear of his passing but I know he is at peace and happy in his new home with God. My sincerest condolences to the entire Gett family.
