Rachel, I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I will always remember him as a kind man that I enjoyed talking with at the bank for many years. Then, one day, I found a family connection for the two of you and my family from North Carolina. We shared many conversations of life and family. You were the love of his life. He was a good and kind man. I know you will cherish your many memories together.

Rachel, I was so sorry to hear about Larry. Our friendship means so much to me and I would have loved to come to the funeral but it was so I couldn't. Him and Stanley are together again and happy. Please take care of yourself and I hope to see you one day. Love you very much. Peggy Vaughan
