    To my Aunt Bobbie, Moe and my cousins:

    So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. I know he had been ill for sometime and it doesn’t make it any easier when the Lord decides to bring him home and ease his pain.

    The last time I seen Larry, was at a Thanksgiving Dinner in the basement of the church Bobbie and Moe use to attended. Grandma Honey was still alive and the basement was full. Larry came with his son. It was a good time to see everyone.

    Sending my Love and Condolences to my Family.
