    Oh, I read this the evening OF the sorry! I would have been there. My heart goes out to Betty and the Ferraro family and to my Ferri cousins. I so recall Betty coming to my Dad's funeral. I wish we could have spent some time with Larry and Betty in Florida when they were there. We were always going to.....condolences to the whole family. We know that Larry had been ill for some time. God bless you all and may God's light shine upon Larry in Heaven. Prayers for all of you and all of our departed family.
