  2. I was so saddened to hear of LARRY’s death. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your family was a big part our lives when Greg and DAN were playing ball. Their friendship has continued and grown over the 35+ years and Dan has been like a part of the family! It was many a time without LARRY and Cyndie’s help Greg would not have made it to a practice or a game. Be assured you will all be in my thoughts and prayers throughout this rough time and if there’s anything I can do to help please feel free to call. Love and hugs Linda
