Anthony & family; and to Michel and Pierre

My sincere condoleances.
I borrow the words of Mary Oliver, a poet certainly known by Larry.

“ I believe in kindness
Also in mischief
Also in singing
especially when
singing is not prescribed. ”

Larry, you were the most influential person in my life. Our close friendship began when I made my way to Ottawa, (by myself) to tell you that I was gay at the age of 16. I miss you everyday. I will make sure that I stay close with Mike and Pierre and visit Ottawa on a regular basis like I have done for these last 52 years. You taught me how to be a man and the importance of family. I look forward to seeing you again one day in heaven.
