    So sorry to hear of the passing of Lawrence. We so enjoyed him through the years of family activities along the Bean Family tree. We always enjoyed seeing him and his family at the family parties with Gloria and the Fathers Day events at brother Norman’s with their family when we were younger. He will surely be missed by many.
