Did not know this, no one contacted me from the family. So sorry for all left behind grieving. Larry & Evalinas came to visit us in our humble apartment & brought a gift right after our marriage, the only people who did. Happy memories of the kids, too. Will not forget them & am waiting for the resurrection of all of those that have passed.
