  1. I’m sorry to hear about Larry’s passing. We worked together at WBM in the early 1980’s. I always liked “Bear”, he was a really good guy. My sincere sympathies to his family and friends.

  2. So, so sorry for the passing of your beloved husband, father to your children and grandfather. My sincerest condolences to his brother Bill as well.
