My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Judy, Kenny and Kevin and all of the family. I have some great memories of Mr. Larry. He was so much fun to be around. I definitely enjoyed trips to the races on the ole bus and great times at the hunting club with my Dad and all the neighborhood crew from Bel air Drive. I love all of you and pray for peace and comfort in the days ahead.
