Larry was our mailman many years ago. He always had a smile on his face and took the time to share a laugh. May he rest in peace.

And so, Uncle Larry, today we bid you farewell. We will forever remember you piling as many of us kids as could fit into your car to take us to the movies, a courageous feat not many would have attempted. We will recall your Labor Day parties every year, during which we would sneak upstairs to the room which, to us, was like a Chamber of Secrets, where the walls were covered with every single Playbill of every single show you & Al saw at the theatre. We shall not forget the smell of the burned Corn Chowder which was blamed on poor little Matt's diaper. We will forever reminisce about your Christmas gifts each year, & we will certainly miss your Cheesey Potatoes, Keilbasa, & the dozens of other special dishes you were so proud to have us eat. Mostly, we will miss the Uncle who never forgot our names, the names of our spouses & children, never forgot a birthday card, had in interest in what was happening in each of our lives, & gave us all some great laughs. How many people are fortunate enough to have had such an Uncle? We thank you for the memories. Good Journey, Uncle Larry. You were well loved in this lifetime.
