Keith and family,
I have fond memories of Larryetta; she was a friend and mentor to me during our time at Ft Eustis. We enjoyed talking about literature and classes I took during my internship. My condolences to you all.
I am glad I knew her.

Dr. Schall and I became acquainted at USATSC. She was a wonderful person and it was a pleasure knowing her. She was kind, never condescending and always treated people fairly.

I will be forever grateful for her friendship.

We were polar opposites on politics and football. we last brunched barely 3 weeks ago—she picked up the tab as a birthday present and I gave her a book. We were going to do a James River winery tour and picnic…
