    Larry, was my favorite Uncle, and he is going to be missed dearly! One of my favorite things about Uncle Larry was, the fact that he could roped you into a story that you didn’t know was true or a joke, and when he knew he had you, then he would get this smirk on his face, and you’d be like “oh you’ lol-á
