Larry and I went to school from kindergarten thru West High together.  He was my lab partner in 9th grade Biology and we sure gave Mr Lewis a bad time.  Was disappointed that he was not at 50th reunion.  Rest in peace Larry.

I remember the last time I saw Larry Leslie.  It was probably a year after graduation.  He was at Joyland with some other guys.  We talked for a few minutes and he seemed very happy.  Later I heard that he was working at the Wichita Club.  It sounds as if he had a very good life.  I'm glad.  I always liked him.
