I was so sorry to hear about Larry’s passing. He was always such a wonderful man, and he was just like a dad to all of us! I’ll never forget him being around all those years at dance recitals and Red Line competitions! Only fun memories, and I know he will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your dad was one of the friendliest people I knew. He would always smile and wave to me everytime I seen him, whether I was riding my bike, walking to Frizzi’s or just getting off the school bus. If you ever need to talk, just get in touch with me and I’ll be there for you! Take Care!
