I am so sorry Uncle Larry became so fatally ill. I feel for his daughter, son in law and his two grandchildren. Also my heart goes out to my cousins. Uncle Larry was practically of our generation.
He was a very positive yet truthful person. I live in Texas and miss being able to come to honor his life in person.
He and I were like brother and sister because he was about 12 when I was born and my mother and I lived in his parents home while my father was serving in the Navy. He is much loved and will be much missed. I talked to him on the phone before he became too sick. He was a pleasant person to talk to. He use to tell me jokes and was the first teenager I knew who said "cool" and "Man!".
