Dear Justine,

I am so very sorry for your loss, Larry was always good for a laugh and great conversation or stories. He’s now with Tony and they can continue to BS, and they’re only a mile away from each other, Tony’s in Graceland. I still remember seeing you both in December at Northwestern when I heard the news.

I know how you feel and it’s very strange and takes getting used to. I’ll see you Thurs. My prayers are with you.
