Dear Rita and family, My deepest sympathy to you and your family on the recent passing of Larry. Although we did not see each other often in later years, Larry lived near us when we were growing up. We attended the same schools, including the one at the lumber mill. He will be missed. Best wishes to you all, Marilyn
