    We shared our condolences, our hugs and our tears at the funeral home…Let’s remember the good times we shared over the years. The many dances from both Sacred Heart and Shaw high schools -the Home Comings and the Proms – the many dinners we shared – along with a few beverages…The double dates the sharing of rides.. I could go on and on. We grew up together — we were and always will be the best of friends.
    You have been by Larry’s side through it all — you are an example for all to emulate.
    May the good Lord watch over you in the years ahead.
    Donna and I will keep in touch – I promise.
    Your good friends Ron & Donna
