On Larry's sister Sherri's birthday we went to get pizza and had chocolate cake afterward. We had a nice time. Larry was always good to me. We all went to Turner Falls. Me and his sister, Sherri, spent the night at Larry's house. We played darts and his dog Barlow paid his respects during the night. I will miss Larry but I know I will see him again. With much love to my cousin. Tell everyone we'll be coming along directly.
