My Uncle Larry is remembered by me as handsome, sweet, loving. Saw him at the Cardinals' game two summers ago. What a great memory! My sympathy to Trudy and Keith. Have fond memories from when I was little and knew my Uncle Larry with Aunt Judy who died so young. I know he's now at peace with my other aunts and uncles including my mom (and dad). LOVE...niece Barb in St. LOUIS.
