We were so sorry to see the notice of Larry’s death in today’s local paper. He and his family were good neighbors when we moved to WA from OR in 1979. Jason and Jenny were older but Heather was about the same age as our Mark and Michelle. Heather and Michelle were good playmates until Heather “grew up” and went to Middle School, leaving Michelle behind as a lowly elementary schooler!
Jenny was our babysitter during those years and we loved her dearly.
Rest In Peace, Larry.
