I have many fond memories of my cousin Larry. One in particular is from more than 60 years ago, when Larry was a young man and I was a young teenaged boy. I remember that Larry had what I believe was a Ford coupe. Anyway, he had picked me up in the coupe to drive me somewhere -- and during the ride I learned that Larry really liked to drive fast. It was a bit scary -- but it was exciting too -- and from then on I thought Larry was a really cool guy! Of course, he was much more than that -- as his family and friends know. I share your loss -- and know that you all have many fond memories of my cousin Larry.
