    James and Peggy, I am sorry to read about Larry’s death. I was searching for you guys to see if we could meet up somewhere on the 17th. I need to be at the VA in Kansas City that day. I live in Nevada, MO. And sure would like to see you and reconnect. Its been a long time. If you get this msg before the 17th of August, you can send me an email or call (417) 321-3975. Larry was a good person. I have nothing but fond memories of him. It makes my heart sad that I can’t see him again. But I’m sure I will on the other side.
