I remember ,Uncle Larry as always having a smile! When we visited him and Aunt Syl at their home, we enjoyed seeing them and the family! He came to our house a couple of times to help Dad! Fixing the TV set! He was always there to help my Dad if he needed it!I will truly miss him! And the times the whole Quinn clan got to gather at grandpa Quinn house on the pond!!
