My earliest memory of Larry was coming over, maybe right after Christmas but not sure, and Chad had received a Nintendo Game System and we were all playing Duck Hunt together. Larry, Chad, my father and myself were all trying to figure out how in the world that game knew you had hit the duck by shooting the TV screen.
Other memories include family trips to the beach together and also hearing his hunting and golfing stories.
He will be greatly missed and I am sorry for your loss. As the same with many others, I wish I could be there to offer kind words at this time in person, and hopefully one day we can all sit down and remember together.
Phyllis, thinking of you and your family with hugs and prayers as you adjust to life without Larry.
