 Many lives changed forever

As the years go by, I constantly reflect on the many memories I have of Larry and Teri, a girlfriend of mine since high school. Larry nicknamed Ter "Queenie", which always makes me giggle. They were a special couple.

I think back to their wedding day, a great costume party one Halloween when Larry was dressed as a female, and that week before 9/11 when we were all at their house partying and discussing the possibility of Larry's up and coming retirement.

Who knew that in a week, so many lives would be changed forever.

Larry will always remain close to my heart and in my prayers. As with all his friends, we miss him dearly.
