Remembering My Friend...

Larry who passed away on Thursday. You've read me blogging about the love I have for golf but it is in no way as big as the love Larry had for the game. When my husband (who played with Larry on the high school golf team) couldn't play with me in tournaments because of work, Larry stepped in as my "subhub" as we called him. I really loved playing with him and not just because he was a fantastic golfer, but because of his infectious, very dry sense of humor. I felt no pressure in trying to play great, but to just have a good time. If I hit a bad shot and apologized to him, he would just say "no reason to say you're sorry" and we'd move on...neither one of us however, wanted to lose! We only did once - on a card off. It was quite a bummer but we decided we did our best and it was all we could do. I grieve for the loss of a dear man and for his kids and family who are in shock. I hate that I won't see him almost everyday anymore, but I will however, carry his smiling face, his positive attitude and the memories I have with me always...never forget to tell your friends and family you love them every time you see them...you may not get another chance...
