Lea, Larry always was nice and had a smile on his face. Leon and I enjoyed visiting you and Larry. We all had a wonderful time at our parking layout FMCA association convention. The video of Larry's life was wonderful to watch. When I married Leon, you and Larry accepted me with open arms and I appreciate that so much. We all will miss Larry, you take care and I if you need someone to talk with, I am here. I will be praying for your comfort during these times.
