    I’ve loved Larry since I was a kid. Grew up down the alley from him. His Awesome wife, Ginger Larry, Kenny and I became close friends and spent many Wonderful Times together.
    Kathy, Jimmy, Crissy, Leslee, you are all Wonderful people and I love you all.
    The thing that comes to mind the most is, “He was one of a kind”!
