    Sad to learn of Uncle Larry’s passing. Fond remembrances of he and Ida’s last trip to N.B. to visit my parents. Love and prayers Faye

  • Tracey Thomson says:

    Very sad indeed, to lose Uncle Larry – I have many, many fond childhood memories of him & send condolences to the entire family. I will always remember how he would take time to play with me, always include me in “adult” activities, and yes, even tease me, just like a terrific Uncle would. He will be missed
