    Jeri & family. I’m so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. Although I didn’t know him real well; the occasions that I did get to visit with him were remarkable. In fact, as I drove by your home earlier this week Jeri, I recalled how kind he was whenever he saw me. Please accept my sincere condolences.
