Remembering 'Red,' with the Handlebar, Mustache
I enjoyed visiting, with you and discussing, my December, 1967, R. and R., to Hawaii. Then it was your turn, to have a Hawaii, R. and R. and time, with your wife. This is what I remember, most and of course, your red, Handlebar Mustache. You and David had, the biggest and best, in our company. I will always, remember, your sacrifice and have erected, my own personal, memorial, to you, Red, David and Rabbit Harrington. NEVER FORGOTTEN.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings, Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things. You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung, high in the sunlit silence, hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle flew, and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Hey, Larry
Hey, Larry, I remember you, so well. I was eight, years younger, than you and my brother, Dave and the rest, of you goofballs. What a crew, you were. High school, football heros, inquisitive kids. I remember the shock, when we learned, you were gone. There's not a time, when the old Thornton Gang, gets together, when you're not, mentioned and remembered always, with a smile. Rest well, old friend.we all remember.

I never met you, Larry. But I close my eyes and say a short prayer for you, 35 years after the day you died. Hope I'm not the only one who remember your sacrifice.
