Dear Rocky and beautiful family, Gus and I from st Luke's parish at the time, once attended your beautiful daughter's baby shower . I remember gifting her with a blessed virgin statue? And I remember Larry once at First Communion day practice For my granddaughter , reminding my husband and I to be saying the rosary daily. That was a great reminder to me! I first met you at cursillo where you displayed a beautiful quilt you had made for an auction there. I just yesterday saw it printed in our bulletin at Holy Spirit church of Larry's passing . My deep condolences to you and your family! And my prayers to all! Kay Johnson. ( Gus passed Jan 9,2022)
