Dear Susanna,
Carol & I were shocked to hear of Larry death. I'll always have fond memories of Larry annual visits to drop off his dues for the Marine Corps League. He was very proud of being a Marine & I thank him for his service. Once a Marine
always a Marine! I'm sure St. Peter will assign him guard duty at the gate. Semper Fi (always faithful) We'll miss you.
Love Dennis & Carol Pentrack, Marine Corps League
