Dear Linda, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family during this time of sadness. We cherish the memories of Larry and you, especially when you two stayed with us in Rockville, MD during Larry's business in the DC area and spending that Easter with us exactly 52 years ago, April 1967 and our trip up Skyline Drive. Growing up across the street from each other in Marshalltown, Larry and I were constant buddies. He will always have a special place in my heart. God bless you all. Denny & Pat
