  • My Uncle Larrie

    Posted on 7/23/15 - by Elizabeth Janes
    Larrie was my dad's only sibling. He died 9 years prior to my birth. I often reflect on old pictures and home movies, and see some of his personality in me. I often wonder what he was really like. Such a handsome man, with great charisma, as I am told. I am sad I never got to meet him, but his memory lives on in my family, and I can't wait for the day we finally meet.
