    Larry was so kind to me when I was handling Bob Pigati’s funeral arrangements. He said not to worry as we will get him buried at Camp Butler, in Springfield. He arranged the Military funeral on a very cold day in January 2015. Larry was true to his word and everything went as planned. His integrity and professionalism will never be forgotten. Thank you, Larry. RIP
