    candle 1Words can not tell what a prince of a man that Uncle Larry was. He always had a smile and was a dedicated husband and father. He was one of the nicest men you could ever meet. He had a sweet tooth and I have many memories of him handing out Brach’s bulk candy at church from when I was a little girl. He and Aunt Mary opened their house to me and let me stay with them when I left the country an went to school in the big city when my husband was in Germany, from 1983-1984. They made sure I had a winter coat and was always very giving. He loved children and always picked at them. He will be missed!

    Mary, we are so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. Being right across the street from you two for so many years was such a blessing to our family. We felt so comfortable having you right there as the kids were growing up…especially as much as Jay traveled back then. Larry was such a solid guy. I loved hearing him tell about his days with the military and seeing the woodworking projects he was creating. All 3 of the kids were so sad to hear he has passed…but we were all comforted thinking about where he is now. We’ll see him again. Love to you. Tina

    With this question, your interviewer is asking you to sell him on you and your status as the best person for the position
