    Dear Family,

    My mom (Josephine Castronovo) and I are so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. She talked about him often of his independence and his positive outlook on life. She was not able to come to the services, due to receiving some medical care that day. She is looking to send something to your family in condolence, however doesn’t have any updated contact information (she does not use the internet or even have any electronic devices– this sounds like her, doesn’t it??). If you would like, please contact me so that I can let my mom know how to reach you. Again, we are sorry for your loss, and yet celebrate what a wonderful life Larry lead, and the energy he brought to his family, work and community.
    With Deepest Sympathies,
    Mary (Jo) Girardi &
    Josephine Castronovo
