  • My deepest sympathy goes out to you, Pat, and to the extended family. My Cousin Lawrence was handsome, smart, caring and a great dancer. My memory is of us doing the Polka at my Aunt Lucy and Uncle Paul's 50th Wedding Anniversary. Lawrence & I were dancing so fast my high heel flew off. He didn't miss a beat. I know that in Heaven, he's going to organize all those Angels with harps, and get some dance music going. Oh, how we will miss him.
