Dear Jane, Sue and I are so very sorry for your loss. Larry was quite simply one of "the good guys", and we're all going to miss him more than words can begin to express. He was that face you saw every Tuesday night that made you smile...something SOMEONE to look forward to. What he did for the league was probably never appreciated the way it should have been but I'm here to tell you HE was appreciated and loved. All our love! Sue and Bob Hargrove.
