Dear Kathy. So sorry that Larry has passed. My yearly trips to Maine meant I always had my visit with cousin Larry. My big brother Ed Bourgea, his brother Albert, and Larry did some wild and crazy things in the day I was told. May Larry be in peace with all the Goguen’s, fishing , hunting, drinking, playing cards, and just having a fun time. Bless you Kathy for being a big part of Larry’s life.
