I am so sorry to hear about Larrys passing. I was not informed until yesterday the he had passed. Your dad was a great guy and I always enjoyed visiting with him. I will plan on attending the celebration of life if I am informed about it. I also called Bruce Rowe yesterday to inform him . Dennis Burke
