Dear Helen,I am so deeply sorry to hear about Larry's passing. He was probably one of my oldest friends since I knew him back in grade school at St. Boniface. May he Rest In Peace and be embraced by God's ever loving presence. Love, Mary Jones

Dear Helen, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. As a high school classmate of Larry's at St. Michael's, all these years later the thought of him brings a smile to my face. Such a kind and gentle person will certainly be missed.
