    Larry Dwayne was my cousin and I’m heartbroken that he passed away so tragically. My deepest condolences go out to his dear wife, Lori, and his parents, among many others. He had a great sense of humor and was extremely happy when I last spoke with him. I was so happy for him.

    Someday, when we meet again in Heaven, this pain will be gone. Lori, please know many people are holding you close in prayer! “Grasshopper” sends her love!
